Starting off

Here are a few photos of recent work.Photo Randy Vanderveen Grande Prairie, Alberta, Canada 2017-01-09 The area coyote population, like these ones near Evergreen Park, remains very healthy in and around Grande Prairie. While they are good at controlling rodents, pet owners should be wary of letting there pets loose at night as coyotes will often view small dogs and cats as easy meals.Photo Randy Vanderveen Grande Prairie, Alberta, Canada 2017-01-09 Sheila White cleans up shavings in a pen of one of her and her daughter's four horses being boarded at Evergreen Park in the Lewis Hawkes Pavilion.

Looking back

Patrick is a member of the OVC ) Orphans and Vulnerable Children program run by CBM partners at the African Brotherhood Church (ABC).Keeping this site up to date certainly wasn't one of my strong points the past two years. Now that the first week of 2017 is past, let's see if I can do a little better. Here are some photos from 2016.

A second crew in a boat applied the toxin in the main body of water later in the day to kill off an influx of goldfish which resulted when someone released some of the fish in the pond. The hardy fish are very aggressive and take over things and grow to a much larger size in a larger body of water. The release of the gold fish meant no trout fishing in the pond this past summer. It is hoped that this application will kill all the fish and allow for trout from hatcheries to be stocked next spring.Here's looking forward to a new year of possibilities.
