The Guinea Fowl are loving the "footbath"; this fountain has been a major source of water for wildlife and pollinator insects during our current drought. The crickets are still making their pervasive summer songs in the sultry warmth of the end of August. The angle of the sun is changing to the south though, and sunset is getting earlier and earlier, inexorably.

Our college age volunteers have gone back to school and this week the local high school students are back from their summer adventures. We will start having busier weekends and afterschool volunteering. The rhythm of summer at the Sanctuary will shift to autumn.
