Welcome to Everything Croton, a collection of all things Croton -- our history, our homes, our issues, our businesses, our schools -- in short, EVERYTHING CROTON.
It's hard to
believe--looking at the Duck Pond now--that just a few years ago
Croton's officials had pronounced it "dead on arrival". Thanks, however,
to the research, hard work, and native planting efforts of the Citizens
Duck Pond Committee, it was clean, algae free, and teeming with turtles,
dragonflies, butterflies and muskrats this fine August morning. Click on
the photo. We all owe the volunteers several rounds of applause for refusing to take no for an answer.
And don't forget to stop by at twilight to see several small
brown bats who now call the area their home for a few hours each night.

I remember when it used to have white ducks all the time. Now some mallards.ReplyDelete
I have some old photos of when it was left to rot and fester and pronounced a future as a bog. Do you want them?ReplyDelete
Perhaps the Duck Pond Committee might want them for their archives first.Delete
