Posted: November 4, 2016 5:32 pm

    The day before yesterday it was 79 degrees out, and today the TV says its 42 degrees. I really do think that they might be a little optimistic with that temperature.  They feel tomorrow we will see the first 30’s of the fall.  Well, to many of us who have been in northwestern… View Article

  How to eat and/or not be eaten has always been a problem in the natural world.  The animal, bird and insect worlds have developed some very unusual ways to hide or camouflage their appearance.   They can simply disappear right before your eyes.  For the most part, they use color, markings, and the ability to… View Article

LET’S TALK ABOUT THOSES HOLES YOU SEE IN THE TREES ON PRESQUE ISLE

Posted: August 29, 2014 5:25 pm

Usually we think of the forests we see and visit as a natural habitat, or place to live for a wide range of animals, birds and plants. Whenever I am able to talk to visitors on the park and the subject of the park’s woods and forests, the topics turn to mammals, insects, and birds…. View Article
