End of the Season

October 28 was our last day monitoring for the season.
We checked on some pinweed in Campbell's Prairie.  
I always pause when we are in Ruta's little corner.

Then we went to Ostrich Barrens to look for Forked Three Awned Grass.  
While searching we happened upon this moss growing right in the sand.

This fungus was glowing orange in the morning sun on all the nearby logs.

Forked Triple Awned Grass is only a few inches high.  It grows in open sand.  I had no luck photographing it, but I couldn't resist a picture of everyone counting.
At far left is Denise measuring the area with her GPS. Next is Jerry.  Larry is standing. To his right is Diane and to her right is Karen.

We had our fall meeting yesterday and capped off the season with lunch at Mancy's Italian.
