I conducted a tour today of reps from FWC, FWS and Historic Bok Sanctuary to look at candidate sites for the scrub lupine test plots. We settled on a site in the north tract. The plan is to bring in 500 plants this fall and see what happens.
I've begun working on one of the small piles of buried household garbage that dot the preserve. Broken glass is the dominant haul, though I have found a few miraculously unbroken bottles, which I'm recycling. The stuff has been there a while (think pop tops) and who knows what the dig will reveal. When I'm done with this one, another one nearby awaits.

Couple of folks from FWC are coming by next week to look around, perhaps in response to my nagging about the state of the fire lanes and partly to become more familiar with the property. That's good. They've got a lot of sites to deal with and this one is the farthest from their office in Lake Placid. No, I don't know why they decided to locate an office at one end of the network instead of in the middle of it.
