First Day at Work - Trapper Creek
These photos were taken from an 80 acre piece of land that was donated to the Great Land Trust, my current employer, and a conservation easement is in place that will protect the land in perpetuity. These beautiful birds, sandhill cranes, started coming to the fields because the previous landowner had planted barley. When he realized that was what was attracting the birds he continued to plant barley up until his death. To date, the GLT and surrounding neighbors are continuing this management plan and have secured a wonderful home for the birds along their migration route.
