Cascara Tree in the bog

Hummingbirds were zipping around during last week's work party. One even landed on a Cascara. It tilted it's head, observing us. We continue to lower ground level in response to the drought.

Lowering the ground level

Our restoration strategy is to remove the top level of nutrient rich soil to get to the peat at the water level. This summer,  the water line is particularly low.


Labrador tea blossoms just about done

Our bog is fragrant with the scent of labrador tea.


Summer work parties

Water levels are dropping this summer. This is normal but this year, the water table is measured to be a historical low. CBRG monitors the water table weekly.
