Summer crew off and running

We have just added two full-time interns to our work crew and we are off and running for the summer. We will be working at least one day a week at Black Earth Rettenmund Prairie and the rest of the time at Pleasant Valley Conservancy. From time to time we will be joining Rich Henderson's crew at Mounds View Grassland for some shared work.

As we move into summer mode, our work on brush control is tapering off and our work on herbaceous weed control will be taking over. We will also be doing monitoring of the sites as well as occasional collecting of seeds of species that mature early, such as golden Alexanders, shooting star, spiderwort, and lupine.

We are delighted to have our two summer interns (Dan and Sarah) join us!
