3/31- Allen’s Meadow, Wilton
It’s been over 10yrs since Allen’s Meadow was mowed, allowing secondary succession of woody plants to begin their steady encroachment. Partnering my own efforts here (in establishing a Native Pollinator Meadow) with P&R’s overall park management, they agreed to resume annual mowing again and did so yesterday. What a rewarding sight to see Allen’s Meadow this morning looking like, a meadow. Blackbirds finding food in the rubble, a few Killdeer scattered about, Tree Swallows and Bluebirds going in and out of the nest boxes carrying grass clippings. Many thanks to P&R!!
