  1. Quick google image search identified it as Winged sumac but I wanted to see if anyone had any other opinions as to what it might be. Currently growing my parents yard in CT...
  2. I am certainly not a plant expert but maybe mugwort (Artemisia vulgaris) or Wild chervil (Anthriscus sylvestris) ? I am sure our CISMA coordinators will be able to properly identify this species! @Katie Grzesiak
  3. @Christina Baugher - would the scat be small, like the size of sprinkles on a donut?
  4. Hi everyone, a Facebook user sent us these images of an unknown substance in her yard - eggs maybe? She had never seen something like before and was unsure what it could be.

  7. Hi everyone, thanks to Erica with the Oakland County CISMA, I wanted to let you know that after a discussion with Phyllis, we decided to add European frog-bit to the list of priority species. Priority species do not show up in the drop-down menu when you want to create a new alert and are not included in the alerts if you select the option for species reports for all of Michigan or a specific county. In order to receive the alerts of EFB, you will need to be manually added to the alerts table. If you would like to receive alerts for EFB please either post here or send me a private message / e-mail so that I can check the list to see if you are already signed up for the alert or if you need to be added. Thank you.
