This week at the Nature House, we have two volunteers from Switzerland. Lea and Markus first visited Ottawa and now they are spending time in BC, fortunately for us, that includes three weeks here at Richmond Nature Park. Lea is also writing a blog for us auf Deutsch. I'm especially happy about this and feel that it really enriches our website and hopefully will bring Richmond Nature Park to the attention of other German speakers.
In the picture, Lea and Markus are standing on our brand new steps. These feel very grand and the cedar used to build the handrails and sides, looks and smells so beautiful right now.
Planting in the wildlife garden and round the new amphibian pond has really started in earnest. The timing couldn't be better. With spring well under way, even after a couple of false starts, the place is looking and feeling truly revitalised.
