North Chagrin Reservation Going Down Hill
One of the near no hit misses in my area WAS North Chagrin Reservation. For the past, oh, about two years, it's been going down hill...fast!
I was there this past Saturday and the place looked awful. It's almost like nobody knows how to use a weed eater. In the back of the Nature Center is a garden that is setup for the birds. This place use to be beautiful. There were plenty of feeders. There were plenty of perches for the birds to land. There was even a little pond.
Now, it looks like a bunch of weeds. If the perches were still there, I couldn't see them because of the weeds. So it's a safe bet the birds couldn't see them either. I counted at least one seeder on the ground. The path around the garden is gone because of the weeds. The funny part is, they have the area surrounded by a fence, as if anybody would even dare to go in there in the first place.
At the pond itself, which was known for the wood ducks, has anything but wood ducks. If you're lucky, and I do mean lucky, you might find a pair of wood ducks. Otherwise, be prepared to look at a bunch of Canadian Geese.
Hopefully the cause of all of this is due to a fired groundskeeper and everything will be tended to soon. If not, and if I worked there, I'd be embarrassed to tell anyone that.
