- The Greatest Gift
Hi, it’s me, Ken! I’m thinking about what to give to the special people in my life during this giving season. Should I give them an Urban Ecology Center gift membership? A Center t-shirt? Or maybe a day outdoors in the snow? Hmm, perhaps I should ask around. "What does the fox say?"
- Plant Community Highlight: Sedge Meadows
In John T. Curtis' book "The Vegetation of Wisconsin," he identifies five major plant communities (southern forests, northern forests, grasslands, savanna and shrub communities, and lesser communities), each with sub-categories. We are going to look at one of the lesser communities (named this not because of lesser ecological value, but more because it occupied less of an acreage compared to forests, grasslands, and savannas) known as a sedge meadow.
- A Story of Gratitude
This story is one of gratitude, one I hope all our volunteers will have the chance to read. I share this story with you today because I feel so thankful for all that our volunteers do for the Center. If you are a volunteer, please feel free to share it with other volunteers!
