These two photographs are part of the last group of images taken by George Kramer in the Oysterville Watershed, after the early snow of October 30, 2011.


       These scenes were visible from his deck.

These kits are two of a litter of foxes in the Oysterville Watershed. Their parents are probably terrorizing the chickens at the Toth and Dietrich farms. Those farms can be seen on pages in the Living* section. 


The hedgerow of trees at the top of the image are on the divide between the Oysterville and Pine Creek watersheds.

This interesting barn, to the left, is on a farm that has great historic and environmental value in the watershed. The farm is a source of an unnamed tributary of the Oysterville Creek. This farm has not been conserved yet, although the Berks Conservancy has been talking to the owners. Many neighbors are also encouraging the family to conserve it. We hope it will be conserved.
