Cities are key to saving monarch butterflies

It's easy to think of cities as being the enemy of nature. When we talk about escaping the skyscrapers and car horns, we have visions of breathing in fresh mountain air while hiking through forests in mind. But for Monarch butterflies, the busy cities we know could be key to their survival.

Save the bees (and time and money) by creating a bee lawn

Flowering "bee lawns" that attract pollinators are a compromise between fastidious turf management and the more casual yard approach. They add biodiversity to the landscape and need less maintenance. That makes them cost-effective, too.

Don't Step on a Bee Day is a reminder that the fate of the common bee lies in the balance – with bee numbers in some countries having halved in the last decade with no apparent cause, it’s vital that we take care to maintain bee populations, pollination, and honey production.

Please consider planting milkweed in your yards. Without it the Monarchs can't survive....

Did you know that monarch caterpillars will only eat milkweed plants? To help conserve the monarch, the Wisconsin Monarch Collaborative has a goal of planting 119 million stems of milkweed in Wisconsin by 2038. This is a huge goal, but with all of Wisconsin working together, it’s completely do-able. They need your help! There’s a lot you can do to help monarchs. Will you take the pledge? https://bit.ly/2VhfhO8

We are so happy to see this progress in land management. Not only does it provide habitat for pollinators, it decreases the need for mowing which in turn decreases green house emissions.

PLANTING ANNUAL FLOWERS AT CR 25A and I 75 Interchange on June 7, 2019.
The Interchange is within the city limits of Tipp City, Ohio.
The soil finally was dry enough to plant Annual Pollinator Flowers which is the 1st phase
Of establishing Pollinator Flowers. The flowers will start blooming in approximately 5 to
6 weeks. Annuals are planted the 1st year to check for weeds that might sprout along
With the Annual Seed. If needed the weeds will be killed in the fall. Then Perennial Seed
Will be planted.
Ohio Dept Of Transportation (ODOT)is heading up the project working with local ODOT
Personal such as Josh Smith, Manager Of The ODOT Garage. This is a Collaborative
Team effort across Ohio.
Blackeyed Susan, Coreopsis, Cosmos and Blanketflower are among the seeds that were planted.
Terry Lavy and Ian Wilson Of “the Conservationist” sowed the Seed.

The National Weather Service (NWS) tweeted Wednesday about a swarm of ladybugs moving through Southern California that is so large it registered as a weather mass on their radars. “A large echo showing up on SoCal radar this evening is not precipitation, but actually a cloud of lady bugs termed a ‘bloom’ #CAwx,” NWS San Diego said.

Sometimes finding good quality native plants is difficult. Here is a great article with lots of hints.

Finding plants to purchase can be challenging for native species enthusiasts. Small local growers of nursery stock have nearly disappeared, and today many nurseries purchase plants that have been propagated and grown somewhere else. More often than not, nurseries are . . . Read More »

Every flower and every plant makes a difference.

A statewide effort by ODOT to create pollination habitats has resulted in 120 wildflower fields off our highways so far — with dozens more planned over the next three years.

We do have this invasive plant in our area. It usually poses no threat unless it is ingested (eaten).

Native to Eurasia, poison hemlock (Conium maculatum) was introduced to North America and quickly became naturalized, not just in Ohio, but many other states in the United States as well. You can usually find this invasive growing in pastures, roadsides, edges of woods, old fields, ditches, and stream banks. For identification, this invasive can grow 2-8 feet tall and has white flowers with 5 petals for each flower. The flowers are in an umbrella formation/cluster and are very small, which resembles the more common, Queen Anne’s-lace (Daucus carota). The stem is hollow, hairless, grooved and is green in color but displays distinctive purple spots.

This invasive not only out competes native plants and habitat, but poison hemlock is extremely toxic to humans and holds the reputation as one of the most toxic plants in the United States. If ingested, it can cause respiratory failure, with the seeds and roots holding the most risk.

Poison hemlock is beginning to bloom so be on the lookout for it!

The Waorani people have just won a major legal victory to protect half-a-million acres of rainforest from oil and set a historic precedent for indigenous rights! Thank you to everyone who stood behind the Waorani people and helped make this important victory happen.

Now we need to ramp up pressure to permanently protect this land and support other indigenous nations whose territories are still on the auction block. Send a message to the Ecuadorian government: respect the court’s decision and respect indigenous rights! http://bit.ly/waoraniresist

Born Wild, Stay Wild: Turtles

We are coming up on the peak nesting season for Ohio’s 11 turtle species, and you may encounter more turtles during this period, especially when they are crossing roadways. While it is okay to assist a turtle crossing a road, your own safety when doing this is a priority. Be sure to move the turtle in the direction it is travelling, otherwise it may turn back around and cross the road again.

It is also extremely important to remember that wild turtles are not pets! Wild turtles brought into captivity are at increased risk of being exposed to diseases and captivity might disrupt their natural cycles. If you release a captive wild turtle, be sure to release it in the same area it was taken from. Box Turtles are especially accustomed to a specific home range, and moving these turtles to habitat you think might be more suitable could result in population loss.
