This morning, I went to this little park before the rains came in. This is a sorta sketchy park, but it was fairly full of nature. :)
I picked up a quick dinner before doing a presentation for the Dallas NPSOT chapter on citizen science and Teaming with Wildlife. Stopped by this park for a bit too.
Most of the forbs in (unwatered) area lawns are looking pretty dry after a parched July.
A typical start for my bioblitz's anywhere. This was photographed in the lawn of a city park near the "Historical Springs" in Big Spring, TX.
Before meeting with some folks at Dallas Public Library, I stopped by Reverchon Park for a quick breakfast -- and of course, some exploration! :)
Calyptocarpus is a genus of flowering plants in the daisy family, Asteraceae. The name is derived from the Greek kalypto ("covered or hidden") and karpos ("fruit"). Species are distributed in the southern United States, Mexico, and Central America.
