As we gear up for the close of the season the team has been as busy as ever.
From visiting sites to assess our treatment of invasive species to working on finishing one last site to helping to supervise student volunteer events it has been a rather surprisingly busy october and november.
Our team was able to finish one more site before the weather turned and the frost (and snow the other day) came in and started to do its work on the foliage.
The one site we finished was the Ledges/Octagon, one of the most popular areas at the Park.
Our team used hand tools and pole saws to cut down invasive plant species and herbicide to treat the stumps. While scouting the area we came across some less common plants and also got to admire the Ledges Trails and scenery.
Some current scouting expeditions have led us to encounter some hard frosts and a good indication that earlier spraying has been effective on autumn olive plants.
In the next week and a half we'll be finishing up our season's final report, help out with deer counts, native seed collecting and setting up water level loggers near areas of flooding along the Cuyahoga River. If we don't get a chance to update you before then we hope you all have a great rest of your seasons,
Isaac, John, Trevor, Tyler
