Bird Sanctuary 2020 Report

Prepared by Nancy Hartman on June 2nd 2020

Recently I completed the end-of-grant report for the Mo. Dept. Conservation, which gave us the grant money for our project "Save Our Bellerive Acres Bird Sanctuary." We killed the majority of the honeysuckle in the 22 acres of the bird sanctuary. We planted seedlings and native flower and grass seed. We took a project estimated to have a total value of a little over $25,000, and ended with a final value of almost $32,000. A big chunk of that value came from the volunteer work hours of the project, which, at a final count of 1,085 hours logged, was almost double the hours required. Our partner Beyond Housing gets our unending thanks for bringing us those volunteers. Resident Linda Paunicka was a key partner and a leader for all of the project. Her knowledge of the plant species and of the bird sanctuary were indispensable. Also indispensable was the work of Doug Seely, our 24:1 Community Forester. Residents donated refreshments for volunteers. Truly, this was a community effort.

Our project overseer at the Department of Conservation praised our work. Erin Shank, Urban Wildlife Biologist, Missouri Department of Conservation, wrote, " THANK YOU and all those Bellerive Acres residents & friends who worked so hard on this project! Missouri Department of Conservation is very grateful for your efforts and proud to call you a partner in conservation. Great work!"

Our work continues. In the near future we will be removing wintercreeper vines (euonymus) and the newly-arrived kudzu as well as eradicating whatever honeysuckle and other invasives remain or resprout. We are considering adding walking paths for our residents.
