Woodruff DNR Service Center area - 8/14/19

Northern Highland-American Legion State Forest - Most of the State Forest escaped the devastating storms of the past week. Hikers and forest users may come across a few downed trees and branches. Please use caution when out and about. Water levels remain high, but inviting for a swim! Blueberries are starting to ripen, if one knows where to look! Monarchs and admiral butterflies are numerous among the blooming milkweeds. Spotted knapweed is full of bumble bees. St John's wort, black eyed Susan's, trefoil, fireweed, queen Anne's lace and cow parsnip add to the beauty of the summer bloom. Turkeys are working the roadsides looking for bugs with their broods of all sizes, and yearling bears can be spotted darting across the road as they disperse from mom during the breeding season. There are plenty of mosquitos, deer flies and horseflies for the songbirds that are feeding their families. - Rosalie Richter, visitor services associate
