Bald Eagle Seen in Walden Cluster

Today, a friend of the Walden Cluster from Chadds Ford, an adjacent cluster, spotted a bald eagle in a tree at 2003 Swans Neck Way, near Lake Thoreau. There is a link to the picture below.

Bald Eagle on Lake Thoreau

A bald eagle was also seen on Lake Thoreau a year or two ago, but it only stayed in the area for a few days. You may want to keep your eye out for this eagle, as he probably won’t be here long.

Boy Scouts and Walden Cluster Pull Together

In a joint service project with Boy Scout Troop 1313 and Walden Residents, we tackled the removal of English Ivy, an invasive species that had been growing aggressively in some of our common areas. Together, we removed 347 cubic feet of ivy. We appreciate the help of all the Boy Scouts, and in particular, we thank Derek Phillips for leading us today!

And thanks to Kathryn for taking the above pictures (and for doing her share of ivy pulling)!
