Planting Mulberries

On Saturday 25th January, a team of brave souls faced below zero temperatures to go out to clear trifoliate orange and dead brush so that 3 Mulberry trees could be planted.  This is the start of a series of projects to improve the habitat at Armand Bayou for the birds.  The team members are:  Gaye Batiz, David Crabtree, Edward Craven, Andrew Hamlett, Ken Russell, Tom Scarsella and Liz VanOrstrand.  Tom Kartrude and Mark Kramer are Staff Representatives.

This is a sight you don't see very often in Texas, a frozen sign complete with icicles.

One of the great things to see on a frosty morning are the stems of the Frost Weed plants.  The sap in the stems freezes and expands bursting the stem and creating these beautiful delicate webs of ice.  Well worth braving the cold to see.

West Bank Rookery

Our Stewardship  Staff and Volunteers have been working hard to help the birds that nest out on the island on the West Bank Rookery.  Due to the large number of birds that nested there last year (approx 350 birds), the trees have died, so to help, a frame with nesting platforms has been erected.  It is hoped to have this finished by the beginning of February when the birds start to arrive.  This is a picture of the island with the partially erected framework.
