  • #wildlifewednesday This Muscovy Duck was found this morning at Ooms Conservation Area by Sutherland Pond and appeared to not be moving when approached. Lynne Harding called CLC right away. We  came out to see what was going on. Turns out this poor guy was tangled up in some fishing line! He is now untangled and unharmed thanks to the help of some good folks! Please let this serve as a reminder to carry out anything you carry in and be sure to pick up any fishing line or lures. All these things can be very harmful to our wildlife friends. .

  • “Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer's day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time.” ― John Lubbock, The Use Of Life .

  • Mondays are for Monarchs! Did you know?! The monarch caterpillar and adult butterfly retain the poison from the milkweed leaves in its body, thus protecting it from being eaten by predators. #pollinators #mondays #flyaway #butterfly #monarchbutterfly #clctrust #funfact #milkweed

  • The bright splash of purple can sometimes be a pretty sight on the stream or riverside, but this Purple Loosetrife (Lythrum salicaria) is considered an invasive species. Its displacement of native species in wetlands has led to the loss of suitable habitat for wildlife. Purple loosestrife is native to Europe, Asia and northern Africa, with a range that extends from Britain to Japan. Purple loosestrife was probably introduced multiple times to North America, both as a contaminant in ship ballast and as an herbal remedy for dysentery and other digestive ailments. It was well-established in New England by the 1830s, and spread along canals and other waterways. Purportedly sterile cultivars, with many flower colors, are still sold by nurseries. Its range now extends throughout Canada and to all states but Hawaii and Florida.

  • A good way to help stop the spread of aquatic invasive species is to properly clean your boats, trailers, kayaks, canoes, and other water equipment before bringing them into a new body of water! #invasivespeciesawarenessweek #invasivespecies #kayaking #boating #cleanwater #conservation
