Hot day, hard work earns cold soda
Each year we pick up litter along the highway near our home. This year Sherrie Egbert from Soldotna Animal Hospital made our litter pickup memorable. She brought us cold soda on a very hot day.

Dandelion sundae: An opportunity to learn about invasive plant species
The exotic or non-native plant persisting in your backyard lawn may not be as benign as you think.

Enjoying the sun
What a wonderfully sunny week it’s been here at Bird Homestead. We want to thank everyone who came out this past week for a visit.

To our “trunk slammers” from California, it was a pleasure to have you out to visit our course and we hope you can make it back again before you have to return home.
