Friday, August 28th: Weekly Highlights

Good morning nature lovers,

We are up to 139 observations of 115 species...amazing!

One of my favorite plants was observed by jackst this week, Jewelweed. It is a beautiful plant, beneficial to pollinators, and can be used to relieve itching from poison ivy! If you hold a Jewelweed leaf underwater, it transforms from green to a shimmery silver as it repels the water.

Keep those observations rolling in as the summer is winding down. Also, remember to help identify observations from others if you know what they are!
