Here is a before and after look at the dog park.
|The park was in a dismal condition before the Eagle Scout project.|
|Such a difference after a lot of team work.|
In addition to the dog park reopening there was a brief ceremony dedicating the newly installed owl box. The event was attended by school children from Wildomar Elementary, of which the owl box was a project.
|A large crowd of eager students, teachers and parents were on hand.|
|City Manager, Gary Nordquist, says a few words about the park and the owl house. You can see Mike Ames, alongside Council Member Bridgette Moore at the right side of the picture.|
Now that the owl house/owl box is in place, as Gary Nordquist put it,
"if you know any owls looking for a nice place to live, just send them on over,"
which got hoots from the crowd. ("Hoots" —get it?) ☺
After the students went on with another part of their outing, Mike Ames called all the volunteers together and gave a heartfelt thanks to all those that made the project possible. Mentioning Janet Morales, among many, for making the project a reality.
