The BHNA recognizes the need for all residents to follow the directives from public health experts and to protect themselves from the coronavirus. We also encourage everyone to help one another deal with this crisis, as we do when a hurricane strikes. We are very happy to alert you to the volunteer efforts of Gini Hosford West to coordinate Neighbor Helping Neighbor efforts.
Who knew what talent resides within Betton Hills? On Arbor Day at McCord Park, the BHNA recognized the four tree artists and poets that won our We Dig Trees contest.
Our neighborhood respects our urban canopy. We encourage all of us to have healthy trees and to plant new generations to replace those that are damaged or at the end of their lifespan. In addition to "adopt a tree" opportunities, we are launching a "We Dig Our Trees Contests" for kids ages 6 through 15.
A Harriman area survey was conducted to determine how to best manage, not eliminate the geese population, particularly during the spring. Survey notices were mailed to 156 homes close to Harriman Park. The notices included basic information about resident geese, a proposed management approach for Harriman Park, and directions for taking a survey online (see Attachment 1).
Thank you to those of you who completed our Fall Fest Survey. The results confirmed many of the BHNA board’s ideas of what went well with the Fall Fest. In general, we’re very pleased that the Fall Fest was so well received. The responders also gave us some good ideas for the next Fall Fest.
