Fall Service Projects Improve Habitat, Trash and Trails

   

THANK YOU TO ALL OF THE WONDERFUL INDIVIDUALS AND ORGANIZATIONS FOR THEIR HELP IN PRESERVING THE WONDER OF THE WOLF!

Oct. 28 - AT&T volunteers made huge progress on the boardwalk trail at Kennedy Park, removing hundreds of pounds of rotten wood and trash.  This clears the way for an Eagle Scout to come in and finish the boardwalk. 

Oct. 29 - Halloween Bat House Project at Lovitt Woods - Thanks to the Fontanilla and the Waltz families and to Mr. McKinney for their very hard work installing two large bat houses and clearing invasive privet.  Special thanks to bat expert Chris Grow of Ensafe, Inc. for leading the bat house project. 

   

Nov. 11 - Ameriprise Financial volunteers installed 10 bluebird boxes along the power easement and cleared lots of privet on our Boyle-Clark property. Well done!

Nov. 12 - Thanks to students and faculty from Rhodes College and a Shelby County 4-H family for their tremendous effort and impact in clearing privet along the trail at the Lucius Burch State Natural Area.

   

Nov. 14 - Environmental science students at Collierville High School led by teacher Eboni Leake spread mulch and planted trees and other plants to prevent erosion and improve wildlife habitat in their large outdoor classroom area. 

   

Nov. 18 - Students at Kingsbury Elementary installed two more raised bed for pollinators in their schoolyard next to Harrison Creek, a Wolf River tributary. Two highly motivated and inspiring teachers, Sharon Fernandez and April Greenwood have worked very hard to plant and maintain a wide variety of native vines, shrubs, trees, and other plants in order excite and engage their students.

    

Nov. 18 - AT&T volunteers showed their strength in removing 65 tires, several hundred pounds of trash and debris, and overgrowth from two Wolf River properties in Raleigh and Frayser.  Thank you AT&T and especially Chris Huffstetler for your leadership!
