AmeriCorps is back!

Last year, a group of AmeriCorps volunteers came to help with resource management. A second group recently arrived and been hard at work learning about the local ecosystems and their flora and fauna while treating Brazilian pepper. One of the cool parts of their trip is their following up and retreating the area the team worked on last year. Just as important as the initial treatment are the subsequent treatments!

Back in action!

Well it has been quite some time since I posted to my blog. I apologize for letting the time get away from me. I have a renewed vigor now that the intern program is up and running again. Plus I just got my hands on a GoPro! So look for new photos, videos, and fun facts from your favorite resource manager soon! Since we just completed out annual butterfly survey with the North American Butterfly Association, I'll leave you with some beautiful shots of our fluttering pollinators!
