Boat Launch on Jimmy Pond

Posted by Theresa

Theresa with Mickey and Toly

Timm and I launched the boat we got from my father. Our pond is named Jimmy Pond in honor of my dad, who loved to fish there. It was fun, tooling around with the dogs in the boat, looking at frogs, salamanders and fish, not to mention the beaver lodge and their engineering marvel, the dam.

Beavers are Back!

Two beavers on the shore

A pair of beavers just moved into our pond!  I saw the two beavers out of the water on a sand bar along the shore.  They’re huge, maybe 40 pounds, full grown and VERY experienced at dam building.  We hope they have some kits soon, as their beaver babies are so cute!

Waterfalls After Flash Flood

Posted by Timm

I shot these videos the day after a flash flood hit Little Wolf.  This video begins with The Bowl, a round gully carved by rushing water.  The Bowl is normally dry except after a heavy rain.  The video then pans over to Ravenwolf Falls, an 8-foot high waterfall named after Theresa’s brother David, whose nickname is Ravenwolf.

Flash Flood in Little Wolf Nature Preserve

Posted by Timm

Water over the dam

Instead of celebrating this Independence Day with fireworks, we were captivated by the power of a flash flood.

“The pond is overflowing!” Theresa yelled when she looked outside during a heavy rainstorm.  Water was rushing over the pond dam and down its side.  Of course, this was not a good thing because the dam could weaken and potentially collapse.  Our mobile home would not be in direct line of a breach, but we were still concerned because we didn’t want to lose our pond.

A ditch just outside my office is teeming with tadpoles.  Literally thousands of tadpoles line the 100-foot long ditch.
