The Wilna House garden looks so beautiful! The Butterfly Weed is blooming, also the Monarda, the Wild Petunia and the Rudbeckia. The Lyre Leaved sage has gone to seed, and the seed heads are quite attractive. Do stop by if you're in the area. (Wilna House is the Refuge Headquarters)

Our duck kits have arrived!: two beautiful resin ducks in a fitted case, bird books, art supplies and instructional materials. We plan to take it to schools and community groups to teach kids about wildlife and submitting artwork to the annual duck stamp contest. Additional volunteers welcome!

I walked at Hutchinson this morning. Many wildflowers are still blooming - mostly asters and goldenrods, but also wingstem, oxalis, sundrops, and lady's thumb. There were also some interesting seedpods - milkweed, trumpet vine, and burdock, to mention a few - and a few mushrooms.

Many thanks to deputy manager Merry Maxwell for taking us on the tour of three usually closed refuge tracts on Saturday. We really enjoyed the chance to see the different characteristics and habitats at Mothershead, Toby's Point and Port Royal. Merry even brought aerial maps and local history information. These three tracts are at the northern end of the refuge. We hope we'll be able to see the southern tracts in the not too distant future.
