PAINTING FOR CROW CREEKPosted on July 8, 2022
This Spring the BNWaterkeeper asked if I would create a painting to highlight the Brook Trout. This beautiful fish is native to the area and an indicator of health of our fresh water. If the Brook Trout are surviving and reproducing, then our headwaters are in good shape. BNWaterkeeper had a plan to clean up Crow Creek and improve the channel under a road that was blocking their lifecycle. When we drove out into the beautiful countryside south of Attica and found the headwaters, we were dismayed to see trash dumped in the creek and an impassable channel. Now BNWaterkeeper is almost finished with a great restoration. My painting was used in their fundraising.
