It is amazing how diverse the flora and fauna truly is. All it takes is a closer look. Having worked in the Ecolab with a Restoration Ecologist for only a few weeks, it is amazing how much I am learning and seeing. There are so many plants, trees and insects that I would have never noticed if they hadn’t been pointed out. For example this little plant, which is called Northern Sea Oats. It is fairly small and easily overlooked, but it is so pretty. In the fall they are full of different colors from green, to yellow, to this maroon color. This world and the things that inhabit it are incredibly wonderful. So take a closer look next time you are out and about.
