Today started with the usual coffee and meeting with Richard. Working on new and fresh ideas to bring to the company. Not much was reached today. Though last night I was inspired by a friend of mine to be more aggressive in setting up waste disposal program for our multi day kayak tours. Our Explorer Tours we provide all food and this produces a good amount of waste. Waste including compost, recycling and standard trash. The idea is to build an easily accessible compost area so that it used more vigilantly. Then create a separation between the recycle bins and trash bins. So I met with Jesse to start clearing the area we will be implementing the program. It is nice to have conversation that leads to actions.
The next portion of my day I went out to Wolf Hollow to help a friend of mine. She needed help feeding a juvenile Trumpeter Swan. This is a pretty large bird. Even though it is not an adult, it is big. So we basically just needed to get it into a corner and get a sheet over its back and wings. Then get a feeding tube in place and feed away. Though I do not think the swan really cared to much for the process. It was nice to catch a glimpse of some of the other wildlife while I was there. I only took a couple of pictures of the swan.
Wish I had something standing next to it to give some scale to the swan.
Kind of a gray color. As and adult it will be bright white.
