-March has been the month of learning, service, and the first signs of spring in Watson Woods. Although our winter hasn’t produced precipitation like we had initially hoped, the warm weather has allowed us to have various groups of school children out at the Preserve, and we are still making great progress giving firewood out to the community.

-Last month I discussed how APS donated a crew of 20 professional sawyers to cut a majority of the large, downed, woody debris at Watson Woods. Since that time, we have made much progress in removing the firewood and getting it out to the community and those in need.

So far so good-I have been working here at Prescott Creeks as the Field Projects Coordinator for almost 2 months, and I am already feeling a strong connection with Prescott.My co-workers are great, I have met lots of cool people who are passionate about the environment, and I am beginning to understand the challenges we all face in protecting our aquatic resources.&nbs
Last week we said a final good-bye to a good friend and steadfast supporter of Prescott Creeks Preservation Association. After a trying battle with cancer, Bridget Reynolds passed away in the early hours of September 18th, 2011 while with her family in Minnesota.
Well, it’s July...monsoon time! As always, lots has been going on. For starters, there’s been the irrigation system in Watson Woods. I really don’t know where to begin but it’s been an uphill battle to get water flowing to our trees. I mentioned in my May blog post that we supply supplemental water to about half of our trees as insurance against a weak monsoon.
June has arrived and it’s my favorite time of the year. The solstice happens around the 21st and that means summer is here…finally! Now I understand from some of you that it isn’t your favorite time because it’s “hot” but I love it because it’s not winter.
After getting back from spring break week in the North West, I'm a little water-jealous. I had to opportunity to view rivers as wide as our lakes flowing with snow-melt and spring rains. Prescott may not have the same sort of large, perennially flowing rivers, but we do have nine creeks and many tributaries throughout the Prescott area that make this a beautiful place to live or visit.
