Excellent program, thank you Pete and Ashlee!
With the general flatness and limestone underlayment of the Oak Openings, do we have any areas of somewhat hidden karst-sinkhole environment?
definitely will do!
Great Job Pete!!
I missed the question.
Thanks, Pete! Harroun Park is one of my favorite places to walk! Looking forward to seeing the changes!
I was there this morning and heard lots of birds. But looking at all the standing water, it looks like great habitat for mosquitoes too. What will keep them in check?
As far as I know we have very few sink holes in the OO.
I'm in ann arbor ypsi area, is that outside the oak openings area?
in SE michigan
Do you have any citizen science or community volunteer programs we can get involved in? I would love to help with invasive species ID and removal
Removal of buckthorn is shown to reduce mosquito populations.
is there any future volunteer opportunity specifically at Harroun park?
Are there any positions open with the Nature Conservancy for qualified individuals?
my mic is not working. They can call the tree commission.
I'm in Toledo, near Sylvania
applause, clap, clap, thank you
