Kamloops Update

Weather is warming and a seasonal update is long overdue.  The Strawberry site is still frozen.  However, even in January,  a small area of open water was being used by a variety of critters as evidenced by the number of tracks circling the water. The big surprise though, was Stud Pasture.  We had put 3 barley straw bales on the ice so that they would sink into the water when the ice melted.  According to Ernest, they would help to inhibit the growth of filamentous algae.  The bales were bought with funds raised through collecting discarded bottles and cans!  They were placed on the ice in late January.
