March and April 2017

Crocuses

Two little blue flowers on the prairie now!

Spring has sprung, the grass is riz….I know where the birdies is 🙂

Welcome back spring with all your lovely sunshine and birds and grass and greenery!  It is lovely out there, out here.  All our spring birds have returned, the ducks, geese, swans, robins, meadow larks, black birds and all the other birds.  Even the lady bugs are back and the ants….there is an abundance of those this spring.

As we prepare for the summer season there are a few things that have been going on:

  • We are excited to have Ashley Dyck starting as our summer student this year.  She will be continuing on with the GVI research and helping implement the invasive species plan.
  • Neal attended the AIA conference in Banff this spring.
  •  Lethbridge college had a field trip on the Ranch Neal assisted in teaching about how range management affects wildlife.
  • Cows come in on May 20th this year
  • Neal took his applicators tutorial course at the end of March and is planning to test in May, he hopes it will help him implement the invasive species plan.

Well that seems to be all that is exciting and happening around the ranch these days.  Enjoy the rest of your April and happy Easter and spring to all.

Shannon, Neal and the boys
