Have you seen my staff?

It is kind of like the game “Where’s Waldo?”. They send me pictures from where ever they are, or send me a question in need of an answer.  One minute they’re here, the next they’re off to the next meeting, event, table, etc. This past month alone they have been spotted all over the greater Toledo area. They went to Bowling Green State University, University of Toledo and Owens Community College for Earth Day Celebrations.  Ava and Paige spent a chilly day in SideCut MetroPark with the Walleye Anglers successfully collecting trash in early April.  A few weeks ago Kyle had all of the staff out at Camp Miakonda in Hartman Ditch learning the techniques of constructing Bendway Weirs to prevent further erosion in the ditch. The following day, we had a marathon planting of silky dogwoods in the rain. We also went to Party for the Planet at The Toledo Zoo a few days before Earth Day and demonstrated how rivers flow using “Popcorn Rivers.” And Storm Drain Marking has begun. Soon, Get the Lead Out will be in full force. And Clean Your Streams planning is underway already. We used to sit and enjoy a lunch together and plan out a few weeks, not any more. Bring on Spring!
