Five Swans a-Swimming

February 20th, 2024, the Arlington Reservoir committee shared observations like the five swans seen on February 19th, while Ann observed geese, ruddy ducks, and various smaller animals. The reservoir appears to be half-frozen and half-open, with a noticeable decrease in water levels compared to usual. Additionally, recent weather patterns have led to a rapid melting of snow and thin ice, making on-the-ice activities unfeasible. We are updating the sketch for a sign near Trader Joe’s to increase visibility for the reservoir-related activities. Upcoming activities such as invasive species removal March 16th with Elaine Crowder & ArMI. The next meeting is scheduled for March 19th, with a focus on Apr 2oth EcoFest:the Annual Garlic Mustard Pull.
