Come to the Pike Gallery, located next door to the Pike Restaurant on Monday Feb 2nd for some GREAT Wetland photography by Local photographers. Free food and drink will be provided by the Pike restaurant. Come hang out, eat, drink, get information and find out whats happening in your Own backyard at the Colorado Lagoon. There will be a short presentation with amazing slides, Music and good people.
It should prove to be a wonderful way to spend your Monday evening with doors opening at 6pm.
See you there and tell your friends!
I would love to share one of my ideas and goals for this blog if you don't mind...
I have the privelage of driving or biking past the Colorado Lagoon every morning on my way to work. And for the two years I have been taking this route it has always been my favorite part of going to work. As a nature lover and photographer I have my camera with me everywhere I go. It dawned on me that I should share my commute and the Lagoon with others by taking a picture on my way in and posting it here. What a great way to allow folks to share in the lagoon who do not commute that way or simply don't ever find themselves up and at the lagoon at 7:15 in the morning.
It is my goal to post a picture every morning but please bare with me as sometimes when I get to work, I have to get to work. As an Cardiovascular Technologist in the operating room at the VA Hospital work can be demanding but I often have a few moments when I first arrive. Sometimes it may just be a picture but if can add a comment about the lagoon that morning I will. To be honest, this blog is completely new to me and I'm just getting started with it. I would love your feedback, comments and thoughts as a reader. If you have a suggestion just drop me an email or leave a comment.
I look forward to sharing my morning commute with this community and helping other to experience the lagoon on a daily basis. Also, I have a lot to learn about the Lagoon, birds and plants and really don't know the names of these things. I will post the picture if someone would post a comment with the name or an explanation then everyone has the chance to learn!
Thank you so much for this opportunity!

We got started first thing in the afternoon with about 50 different Native Plants that needed to be put into the ground. We had over a dozen Amazing folks show up to help out. Everyone dug in deep and got the job done!
Here are some shots from the day...
I think this guy loves his plants!
