This past week gold crew spent a second week on High Island in Bolivar Texas working with the Houston Audubon Society. We continued our work removing Chinese privet to provide better nesting for the local and migratory birds. It was a beautiful worksite with lots of native plants and trees including yaupon trees whose female plants’ berries provide food for the birds. By the water we admired the Cypress trees which are neat because their roots poke out of the ground around the trunks. Lastly we all loved the cedar trees as their scent brought back fond memories of our first 10 day hitch in the Kisatche national forest! These useful trees provide shade and nesting for not only our feathered friends but for those on the ground as well.
Overall, as a crew, we successfully reached our goal of clearing around 2.5 acres of land. We had a great time bonding and working with the Houston Audubon Society
