Do you know about the redside dace? This fish is a cold-water indicator species found in an unnamed tributary of the Mud Run. A robust and sustainable population was observed  in the stream on June 8 of 2018!

UPCOMING EVENTS:

It was a fantastic benefit concert for the Mud Run Conservancy held on Oct. 20 at the Agraria Barn! Many thanks to the community members and leaders who made this event possible. Check out the  the Escarpment Blues sung by Eliza Minde Berman, just a teeny tiny bit of the great music played by Joseph, Eliza Minde Berman, the Wrong Omar and the Corndrinkers!

Escarpment Blues  SUNG BY ELIZA MINDE BERMAN

If they blow a hole in my backyard
Everyone is gonna run away
The creeks won’t flow to the Great Lake below
Will the water in the wells still be ok?
We’ll need to build some new apartments
And I know we’re gonna have to fix the roads
But if we blow a hole in the escarpment
The wild ones won’t have anywhere to go
If they blow a hole in the backbone
The one that runs cross the muscles of the land
We might get a load of stone for the road
But I don’t know how much longer we can stand
We’ll keep driving on the Blind Line
If we don’t know where we want to go
Even knowledge that’s sound can get watered down
Truth can get sucked out the car window
We’re two-thirds water
What do we really need?
But sun, showers, soil and seed
We’re two-thirds water
The aquifers provide
Deep down in the rock
There’s a pearl inside
If they blow a hole in the backbone
The one that runs across the muscles of the land
We might get a load of stone for the road
But I don’t know how much longer we can stand.
