Beaver Pond preserved!
Here's some great news to report.
Ellerbe Creek Watershed Association has, finally, taken title to the 32 acre parcel. The spring newsletter, in print but not yet online, has all the details. Turns out the previous owner was persuaded to sell below market value, and both the Clean Water Management Trust Fund and the Upper Neuse Clean Water Initiative kicked in funds. Look for the Beaver Pond to join the list of ECWA managed nature destinations in Durham in the near future.
More information, i'm certain, will be available at the 5th Annual Beaver Queen Pageant, coming up on June 6 at the Duke Park Meadow. Check out the newly revamped Beaver Lodge website for all the details. I'm honored once again to be the official blogger for the pageant. I'll be posting both here and at BeaverLodgeLocal1504.org over the next month or so till the pageant.
See you there.
