The NCA thanks Pascale Fried for her presentation of Boulder County Parks and Open Space restoration work. Those in attendance were given a history of just some of the projects being worked on.
Thanks also to the Niwot Historical Society for organizing and allowing the NCA to co-sponsor the event.
Niwot Clean Up Day
Sponsored by the NCA
Saturday May 20
Niwot High School
The snow storm that preceded this year’s Niwot Clean Up Day not only made organizers a little nervous, but also downed many tree limbs that ended up in our roll away dumpsters. At Niwot High School the sun was shining and the temperatures remained cool which made for perfect conditions for our community to come out and get rid of debris and yard waste.
In total 14 roll away dumpsters were filled, evenly split between trash and yard waste. With help from the NHS boys baseball team and Boy Scouts from local Troop 161 hundreds of carloads were unloaded, transferred to dumpsters, and stomped flat to make room for the next load. A special thank you to Tom Sesnic (NCA Area #4 representative) for spearheading this year’s event and making it so successful.
|Yard Waste||7 dumpsters|
|Scrap Metal||1 dumpster
Niwot Open Space Tour
Saturday June 24
Sue Hirschfeld, a retired geologist and Boulder County Volunteer Naturalist, conducted an informative guided tour of the Foxhill Sandstone formation that is exposed on the Hillside Estates Open Space in Niwot. This exposure of the Fox Hills sandstone, on which Sue has been conducting research, is a very special area geologically and botanically, containing both fossils from when this area was a shallow sea and, presently, several rare or endangered species. Some of the highlights include shark’s teeth, ophiomorphas, miner bees, and rare lichens.
