Christmas Storm, 12-23-22

The storm that hit the coast on Friday, December 23rd caused the Reserve some headaches. A tree went through our kayak pavilion, and the power went out- putting our aquarium animals in danger and our alarms and heating systems on the fritz. But the flooding!

Phenology Nature Journaling
