Question re: vernal pools
Thanks Brian and Ashlee! Enjoyed this.
To what degree should we be mowing/maintaining those areas are dry
When* they are dry
Wow, excellent video and great presentation. Thank you Brian and Ashlee!
Thank you. Very interesting.
In that first area, what snake was that?
QUESTION: you mentioned similar plants in pig farm and sites in Kentucky …. are there pockets of similar rare wet plants in similar habitats between here and there?
Very informative and great job Brian!! Thank you!
Great presentation Brian! How can I learn more about the management plan for the Bettinger property?
Thank you. My computer has been giving me trouble today, but I did get most of the presentation - very interesting!
I think you showed the Massasauga rattlesnake too?
Great presentation! I'll bet you could go on much longer!
Thanks. Follow-up re: the vernal pools, I'm thinking less about the woodies and more about the risk/reward of mowing later into the season (july/aug) when the areas have established foliage for the year, but only become dry enough for maintenance during those times. Is there any benefit from a mow during the heat of the season, or with the foliage at near peak is it not really beneficial. The particular area I'm thinking of is a couple acres that is water-covered or mucky from Oct-Dec and Mar-May/June.
Thanks. It can be a follow-up offline
