Mild winters cause creeks to run dry if at all like in this case as I stand on a wooden bridge. Sadly without water wildlife moves on. If no flowers grow the bees die off which means no butterflies and no deer to come down to the creek for a drink. In the Spring this creek rages due to snow melt but in August it does not even trickle which is a very sad site to see. The local natives and lumberman used this creek to sustain themselves. We are almost sure that with each mild winter we get the less it is going to flow.
