Beebe Lake Dredging

The Cornell Plantations dredged Beebe Lake in the summer of 2000 to remove a silt barrier which had formed at the entrance the lake (just west of the stone bridge). As promised, the dredging attracted many water birds, including several great blue herons.

Following are some photos of the dredging process and the dredged lake, courtesy of John and Pat Clark (JPC) and Kristin Poduska and Erika Merschrod (KPEM).
