Sweetwater Trail just south of the back gates will be closed for about 1 month beginning July 2nd, 2012 for bridge replacement. Alternative routes south to Nashville and State Road #46 will need to be determined. Maps will be available at Sweetwater Realty. (bridge pictured is in Camp Atterbury)

I happended on The Great Goose Round-Up this morning on Cordry Dam. A combination of conservancy workers in boats and private company workers on land were herding a great number of geese into a fence enclosure then one by one hand loading them into a fenced in trailer. At this time, they are in their "molting" stage and can't fly so capturing is easier. The geese are bound for relocation a long way away.....we hope!

Finally! Workers appeared today clearing out brush and vegitation in preparation for dredging at the north end of Sweetwater. The construction of a "parking spot" for dump trucks is step #1. The trucks will be loaded at this point and take the "spoils" to a location across the road from the beach.

The Tulip Trees in the area have been making quite a mess. They are giving off an extraordinary amount of sticky sap this spring. It's due to the Tulip Tree Scale, a small bug that infects Tulip Trees. It's also a result of our warm winter that didn't kill off many insects. There are even large black sticky spots on some of the roads where the Tulip Trees hang over. I thought I was having a flat tire one day.....got out to look.....just sticky spot in the road!
