Over 30 people turned out for Bobcat Build on a beautiful April morning. We all made our way to the trash pile left by previous land owners in upper Purgatory Creek Greenspace and began the process of deconstructing the pile. We cut and pulled away the fence along with some vines and a few branches. Analysis was part of the process in that the necessity to separate materials for recycling required a closer look. (It’s a good idea anyway when you know snakes and other critters are a possibility.) It also meant finding the occasional odd piece of history ranging from an old credit card to weird bottles. By the time our work session was over, only a small pile was left to be scooped up with shovels and bagged.
Our thanks goes out to the bobcats and SMGA volunteers who helped and especially those who stayed to the end of a long and productive session. Thanks also to Melani Howard, Jimmy Venable, Kyle Hahn of Green Guy and his driver David for their material support.
