    Canoe trip with City of Hudson's PROMISE Corps program participants and AmeriCorps members.  Our eagles showed themselves, and kingfishers made themselves known with their chattering call, and low sweeps over the surface of the water.

    We had a nice catch of fish in the seine net out on the island; killifish and blueback herring abundant.  Water sampling in the creek showed dissolved oxygen levels good; pH was also in the good range; turbidity was elevated due to recent rains.
