We’re Canceling tonight’s meeting due to the freezing rain weather advisor. We had a small agenda planned, nothing pressing so we’ll push off till January. Happy Holidays everybody, and be safe out there!
Update from FAR…
Photo shows the fabulous stainless steel sandhill crane art that doubles as places for people to park their bikes while enjoying walking the nature trails at CCENA. With a cable lock you can easily tether several bikes to one crane.
Kiosks 1 & 2, shown here, host interpretive signage highlighting key species the sandhill crane and Cook Inlet beluga whale, and a triptych of flora and fauna one might see while visiting CCENA over the course of a year. Enjoy learning more about the wildlife of the ACWR and adjacent lands and waters by reading the beautiful new signs recently installed.
