Newspaper Story Conveys Park Habitat Situation

A story in the Omaha World-Herald by Nancy Gaarder conveys what has recently transpired at the northwest pond area at Levi Carter Park. The story was issued on September 30th, and included a photograph where clearing had occurred, focused on the south and east portion of the pond.

This is a version of the same story as reported by Leah Uko at KPTM.

The following photograph was personally taken on September 29th, at the same area, showing the west side of the pond. The temporary planting had not yet occurred.

The wooden structure on the left, has only been boarded up within the past couple of weeks, since it was shown to city Parks officials, and indicated as an obvious hazard, due to its having an internal depth of more than ten feet.
