My project was to build a path composing of series of steps down to a small pond between station #5 and #6. My project not only provided safe access down to, and across the pond but also created a safe and close vantage point in which to observe the ecosystem and creatures in the pond. Between the water bugs, small fish, crawdads, a host of plants and the endangered species: the Yellow Legged Frog, this makes for a pretty interesting and educational site for a small body of water. Along with the building of steps we landscaped the surrounding area by evening out the soil, transplanting aquatic plants, and laying down a layer of woodchips.
I would first of all like to thank my Mother and Father: My Father, for being my right hand man throughout the entirety of the project and my road to Eagle, and giving me good advice and counsel; My Mother, for driving and providing snacks and drinks. I also would like to thank my awesome team Leaders: Parker Stevens, Isaac Butterfield, and Marco Zambrana. Along with my diligent workers: David Kodur, Chris Colvin, and John-Marc Eshelman.
I would also like to give out a special thanks to Dr. Blueford, for providing me with this project, and her outstanding service at the Tule Ponds at the Tyson Lagoon.
