The Demonstration Garden is preparing to rest for the winter.
Somewhere in the past the Blog for GVM Ecology was converted to a static website.
If you look closely, you’ll see the most recent blog post was in 2017.It’s not that the Ecology Team hasn’t existed since then. It’s a reflection of what happens with web maintenance in a volunteer organization with evolving membership.
Useful as a website is, we also need a place to keep up with all we’re doing as an Ecology Team.
So now we have both–a website, and a blog.
5/28/2010 Email from Jim E.: “I noted today that Muttongrass (Poa fendleriana) is in full bloom, likely our first to do so.”
05/24/2010 Jim E. emailed this information on Dryspike Sedge (Carex foenea): “It IS “an early fruiting species, but not what I thought. I saw it today on the trail of the USFS’ meadow inholding near here. Rather short with a tight spike on a single culm. The genus Carex is extremely difficult to key out (at least for me), with many species here on the Eastern Slope. A graduate student at CU/Boulder did his doctorate on these critters. You might pass this on to the few others for their take on this very common Carex adapted to dry conditions.”
