    We walked through the Robinson Preserve, and wondered what the mounds of dirt in many places were. Can you tell me?

      I am sorry I need to check on that. I was just at the Robinson Preserve on my roller blades and did not see the mounds. I will see if I can find out. I did just hear that they are opening up the kayaks to boat over to the Eagle’s nest. Hope to have more for you later.

      Yes, I have seen some very large circular metal pipes with a fabricated gate at each end that is lockable. I apologize I dont know the details and the availability but there are at least 20 or so of those home made storage containers.
