Posted @withregram • @hollidaypark 🌱 Volunteer opportunity! 🌱
Join us on May 12th from 9AM-12PM with our friends from the @indiana_wildlife_fed in partnership with @indyparks, the Indianapolis Office of Land Stewardship, the Holliday Park Foundation, and Friends of Marott Park Woods Nature Preserve - as we work together on some of our Certified Sustainable Trails to remove garlic mustard!
Two separate events on the same day will help to thin out this invasive plant species that threatens the quality of the wildlife habitat in the river corridor.
Come ready to work outdoors! Equipment will be provided - bring your own gloves and water bottle. 🧤

👀 Posted @withregram • @infishwildlife DNR's herpetologists (reptile & amphibian biologists) recently discovered a new population of state endangered Kirtland's snakes! These non-venomous snakes are small and secretive, spending much of their lives underground or beneath cover. They eat mainly worms and slugs and tend to like the moist soil in marshes and river floodplains. You can identify these snakes by their pink bellies which are lined with rows of small black spots. If you find a Kirtland's snake, send your photo(s) to HerpSurveys@dnr.IN.gov so we can record your sighting!

Why would you ever want a 🤢 callery pear 🤢 when you could have a native chokecherry? It smells amazing and supports numerous birds and pollinators. #garden4wildlife #indianawildlife
Posted @withregram • @artemis_sportswomen It’s always fun hanging out with great conservationists. It’s particularly fun doing it in meetings with legislators and their staff. Here we are talking orphaned well cleanup, bonding reform and conservation jobs in Pennsylvania and in Indiana.
