SIGNS OF LIFE IN THE WINTER LANDSCAPE
Sunday, February 26, 2017
Mugwort, broom sedge, grease grass. Field cress, plantain, sphagnum moss. Autumn olive, witch hazel, and white pine. Scarlet oak, dogwood, dawn redwood, juniper, and weeping cherry. Scat of deer, fox, and perhaps coyote. Red-tailed hawk, cardinals, and turkey vultures. These were some of the signs of life in the Preserve explored by a dozen people and two dogs. All five senses came into play–taste, only for the cress!
MARTIN LUTHER KING DAY OF SERVICE
Monday, January 16th, 2017
Over forty volunteers attacked intrusive small trees, brush, and vines, and picked up trash in the Preserve on a fair January day. Trails were cleared between some of the old tree rows, and leaves piled up along the fence were amassed for later collection. We extend our hearty thanks to our cutters, rakers, litter collectors, bushwhackers, registrars, photographers, and two people who took on special tasks–the poison ivy ambassador and the hose king!
