This folks, is a w**d wrench. 🔧💪🔧

W**d wrenches rip woody w**ds out of the ground. It is incredibly helpful for removing laurels, hawthorns, holly, and common broom. If you are in Washington County, we lend these tools for free from our tool library.

Head over to our YouTube channel to learn how to use this handy tool:

🦇 Happy Bat Week! 🦇

Celebrate the heroes of the night and all they do for us:

🍌 Over 300 species of fruit depend on bats for pollination.

🦟 Each night, bats can eat their body weight in insects. An adult bat eats about 1,000 insects every hour!

💡 Oregon has 15 species of bats, like this big brown bat. Eight of those species have declining populations due to habitat loss.

Bats are an essential species for thriving habitats. Learn more about Oregon’s bats from our friends Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife: https://myodfw.com/wildlife-viewing/species/bats

How much do you know about coyotes? Can you tell their tail apart from a fox's? Or do you know how long they've lived in Oregon? Test your knowledge of these resilient mammals with a new, interactive tutorial by the Portland Urban Coyote Project.

Portland Urban Coyote Project has been making use of our Conservation Education (CONE) grant to study public perception of coyotes in the Portland metro area and to develop educational resources to assist residents and coyotes live harmoniously together.

In addition to this neat tutorial, their website includes a coyote sightings map that residents can contribute to in order to further assist our understanding of our area coyotes.

Okay, who else out there is thinking about manure today?
🦙🐓🦃🐇

Seriously! If you own animals a lot of effort goes into managing animal p**p and if you're growing a garden you have a lot to gain from fertilizing with animal manure. Fall is a great time to add manure to a farm or garden and each manure has pros and cons.

We thought you might appreciate some facts for your manure shopping. Think about a few things when picking your animal manure:

✨ What nutrients do you need? Not every manure is the same and some have more nitrogen, some more phosphorus, and some more potassium. Usually these nutrients make up less than 5% of the total content of the manure. Careful of "hot" fertilizers with really high nitrogen contents, when applied directly these can hurt plants.

✨ Choosing composted manure or un-composted manure: Is cost a factor? Can you tolerate some w**ds? Check out slide 2 for more details.

✨ Beware herbicides from livestock forage which can travel through the animal and end up in the manure. Always ask about what the feed of the animals was treated with if you are buying locally and don't know!

Nature is messy! And that's the way it's meant to be. Big wood in streams is commonly viewed negatively, but this is prime habitat for aquatic life.

Wood slows water down, making it easier for migrating fish to move upstream. As water backs up behind logs, it creates pools of varying depths and temperatures where fish can rest, hide from predators, or take refuge when water levels are low. The wood also provides shade, helping to keep the water cool.

🦉 Hoo-h'hoo-hoo goes there?!🦉

One of our specialists spotted this barred owl on a recent ash tree survey. As with most owls, barred owls are primarily nocturnal, but are known to call and hunt during the day. They are easily identified by their soulful brown eyes and brown and white striped feathers.

They can be found year-round in forested habitats that are made up of both deciduous and evergreen trees. Most will remain in the same area for their entire lives! If you live in a forested area, consider putting up a nest box to attract a breeding pair. Make sure you put it up well before breeding season.

Our staff recently joined Tualatin Riverkeepers for a paddle on the Tualatin River. 🛶The Tualatin River is the only river in Washington county, and an important resource for drinking water, irrigation, fish and wildlife habitat, and recreation.

On our paddle we saw many wildlife, including a Great Blue Heron (Ardea herodias)! A popular sighting on slow moving water, but always a treat to see. Great Blue Herons stand still along these waters and wait to catch fish to eat. They nest in nearby trees and shrubs.

We still have great weather so get out on the Tualatin River for a paddle and maybe you will see a Great Blue Heron too!

Fall is in the air! 🍂 Many folks are surprised to learn that fall is a great time to start planting, but it’s true! There are lots of benefits to fall planting:

🌱 Warm soil: the soil is still warm from the late summer sun, which is exactly what new roots need to settle in.
🌞 Less heat means less stress: the scorching sun has finally calmed down, meaning new plants won’t have as much heat stress.
💧 Reliable rain: fall rain will guarantee your new plants get much needed irrigation, even if you forget …
🦟 Fewer w**ds and pests: many garden w**ds and pests are warm-season nuisances that slow down or disappear come fall.

Who's been bugging your summer picnic this year? All of the yellow and striped insects out there are understandably easy to confuse. They're small, share some colors, and are around the same size. But not all creatures are alike, and not all of them are bees.

Top 4 clues that you are probably dealing with a yellowjacket:

☑️ They can't get enough of meat and proteins at your dinner table.
☑️ A lot are coming out of a hole in the ground.
☑️ There's not much hair on the body of the insect and they look shiny.
☑️ Their wing stay spread apart when resting.

Yellowjackets is a common name we have for predatory wasps that exist throughout North America. For a quick crash course in yellowjackets, how to identify them and how to avoid them, head on over to Solve Pest Problems for information on this and other pests.

What do you do when you want to invite wildlife to a certain area? You add habitat features! Our staff is seen here installing a raptor perch on a project site. Although we love wildlife for the sake of loving wildlife, inviting raptors to this site is admittedly self-serving.

Raptors are meat-eating birds that hunt other birds and animals. Some raptors, such as red-tail hawks, do this by perching high above the ground and using their keen eyesight to spot rodents scurrying through tall grass or other vegetation.

While rodents are important members of our ecosystems, their populations can easily grow to large numbers. This can cause problems for farmers who grow food and our restoration technicians who work to establish more native plants in an area. Predation by raptors is useful in these situations because they discourage rodents from coming to the area and limit the growth of rodent populations. This helps to reduce the amount of feeding on crops and young plants.

Check out this article featuring neighbors outside of Cornelius who are embracing the water and wildlife on their stretch of the Tualatin River. Flooding is a normal part of our waterways. Rivers and streams swell with rainwater or snowmelt, causing water to exceed its banks and spread out across the land. This natural process creates wetlands, moves stream banks, and creates the tug and pull characteristic of a dynamic river. We are grateful to have some wonderful partners in protecting these spaces for sustainable flooding, for the sake of the full watershed!

Recent history of this stretch of the Tualatin River is a reminder that many of us live in a floodplain.

Have you ever wondered how woodpeckers repeatedly slam their heads without causing serious brain injuries? 🤕

For years, experts believed that woodpeckers’ skulls acted like helmets to absorb the impact. This long-held theory is the inspiration for helmets that prevent brain injuries in contact sports.

However, a recent study revealed the opposite. Woodpeckers’ beaks and skulls are essentially one piece and act like a hammer, striking and stopping in unison.

Read more about this study from National Audubon Society

The findings refute the theory that the birds’ skulls act like helmets, absorbing the shock of impact. Instead, they minimize it to strike harder.

❗️ Leaves of three – let it be! ❗️

We feel pretty luck to live in an area with few poisonous creatures. One plant that you have to be careful around that's native to our region is ~*poison oak*~.

Shiny leaves, three leaves bundled together, and a red hue to the leaves in late summer are a tell-tale sign to take care: don't touch, keep pets away leashed when nearby, and if you interact with it wash up with hot soapy water ASAP. These steps will save you from a very uncomfortable rash.

The round gentle lobes of the leaves could convince you it's our lovely Oregon white oak. It doesn't help that poison oak grows alongside oak in sunny and rocky environments. Oregon white oak however has distinct dark green thick leaves, not the shiny light leaves of poison oak. When the leaves are gone in the winter you can look at the stem: poison oak will be narrow and tan and the plant grows like a bush or vine.

We hope these tips save you from a bad time after your next adventure at your local park or forest.

Did you know that everyone lives in a watershed? If you live, work, and play in Washington County, you are part of the Tualatin River watershed! 💦

We share this watershed with an amazing array of wildlife species, including some reel-y cool fish. Fish require cool, clean water, so their presence (or absence) can tell us a lot about water quality and habitat conditions. We want to make sure that their habitats are protected and thriving.🐟
