Having just downloaded nearly two months of images from the timelapse cameras at our Derr Wetland Restoration Project (I showed photos and video from this site last week as well), I went through the images to see what stories the … Continue reading
Last week, Jasmine (one of our two Hubbard Fellows) and I spent a morning at the Derr Wetland Restoration here in the Platte River Prairies. We wanted to get some photos and video of the site before the latest snow … Continue reading
After many years of wanting to, we finally installed some solar-powered pumps and livestock water tanks in our family prairie. (Thanks to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and Nebraska Game and Parks for providing cost-share money!) Those two water … Continue reading

Several people have asked me to provide an update on the wetland restoration project I posted about last November. At that time, we’d just completed our second (last?) phase of the dirtwork to convert sand pit lakes to a stream … Continue reading
