Another beautiful Sunday at Green Hills

October 25, 2015

By Daniel Barringer, Preserve Manager


This afternoon Force of Nature Volunteer Jim Moffett and I spent some time scouting some possible future trails at Green Hills Preserve. It was a good day for birds, backlit foliage, and native warm-season grasses. I am more than delighted with how the meadows that I seeded in 2014 have turned out (for the first year the growth was weedy but now, even as the blooms of nectar plants have faded, the native warm-season grasses look great).


Above is a silver maple that towers over the farm fields. Below, one of the three farm fields converted to native grasses and wildflowers.


Owen joined us for the adventure. We’ll begin working on these additional trails in earnest next year.
