2012 03 05 We went to several different places on this adventure, all in Ottawa County.
Ottawa County Open Space
I gave my adventure buddy, my sister Marie, a book today. It is Naturally Curious by Mary Holland, A Photographic Field Guide and Month-by-Month Journey Through the Fields, Woods, and Marshes of New England.
Ok, so it is New England not Michigan but it really covers the northeast U.S. and it has all nature not just wildflowers, it's a very good book. I was able to borrow a copy through Mel Cat (Michigan eLibrary Catalog).
We saw this nest low in a field and we checked Naturally Curious and we found answers right there on the spot.
Hey where did the blue sky go...
Flooding at Deer Creek Park
New map at Eastmanville Bayou
A quick visit to the Tallmadge Township Hall, and a drive passed the old Root Dam. Root Dam was destroyed by a flood on May 21, 1989 and never rebuilt.
Remains of Root Dam on Sand Creek, maybe.
We also walked at Aman Park, to find a bog? I'm not sure there is a bog at Aman but I thought I read something like that somewhere online. And, of course, everything you read on the Internet is true, right? That's it for this day, a very interesting day.
