Hi Kimra,

Thanks for the warning.  We're hosting two large groups of kids in April at
Dimond Park.  In your experience, would something like this be cleared up
by April?  If not, we'll have to do some planning to get the creek blocked
off for those events.

Also, we were unfortunately not able to attend tonight, but I was wondering
if you have any info from the presentation that could easily be forwarded
to me?  It sounded like excellent information to include for our upcoming
elementary school presentations on the restoration work (not to mention for
our own kids.)
