Fernhill makes friends

COURTESY PHOTO: Jay Withgott“Wow. Look at that!” exclaimed 4-year-old Hazel Munoz as, right on cue, thousands of cackling geese descended on Fernhill Wetlands Saturday, during the second annual Birds and Brew festival. Attendance more than doubled from last year to this year, said Eric Brattain, president of the Fernhill Wetlands Council, including people who had never before visited the wetlands but were drawn after reading about the festival in the newspaper. Proceeds donated by Maggie’s Buns and BJ’s Coffee brought in more than $200 for the Friends of Fernhill Wetlands, Brattain said. In addition, a number of people left names and contact information so they could learn about upcoming events, including meetings of the Friends of Fernhill Wetlands.
