My wish is to remind folks that there is a state-endangered plant, matalea at Jim Blair Community Center, that our Natural Heritage is rich but needs to be recognized. The photo is from a plant that got weed-wacked this spring, but may come back.
I believe it to be elsewhere on the property.
This plant can host the monarch butterfly and so is important in supporting their recovery.
With discussion with the Nature Preserves Commission & kind permission from the Judge, I have propagated seed from one of 4-5 pods.
I would love to see diversity supported & restored.
Only as a suggestion, a sign explaining as much at the park would be a wonderful step towards that.
I am in contact with an professional Appalachian herbalist who could certainly assist.
