Today was hot. And humid. We worked hard and managed to see plenty of wildlife (or critters) without leaving the nursery. I pulled weeds and moved rotten wooden pallets that had been eaten by termites. There was a lot of watering plants too for some kids and it took most of the time we were working. Before we set out to work after breakfast in the morning, the two main people we are working with at Common Ground talked to us. I learned about how the organization got started and all the types of work they have done. It was really awesome to learn about the effort that Common Ground has made. When we were around the city yesterday, person after person that we met knew Common Ground. They’re pretty popular and respected by the people in Nola. Tomorrow we’re going about an hour out of the city to ride on an airboat and work in the actual swamp. It’s probably going to be way too hot tomorrow too. The humidity is killing coming from a mile above sea level in Colorado.
