    Nursery Suggestions

    ISN is working on a grant proposal to create a strategic plan for bringing our ground-breaking Go Beyond Beauty program state-wide, and we need input from businesses! We're currently working on getting the Michigan Nursery & Landscaper Association to come to the table, but it would be useful to have businesses from throughout the state interested. Could you help us out by suggesting some? Unsurprisingly, we have northwest lower Michigan covered, and I know of Van Atta's, Howe's, and Andy T's in mid-Michigan that I will be contacting. Where else should I go? Thanks in advance!
  4. Hello all, We received a message today from a concerned citizen asking an interesting question that I feel would make for some great discussion. Thoughts? Comments?
  5. ISN has been working on controlling garlic mustard in a small residential area in Grand Traverse County since 2013, in large part because of the area's fantastic integration into the existing forest habitats. In previous years, garlic mustard choked out nearly all other vegetation: As the years have gone by, the native vegetation (Dutchman's breeches, squirrel corn, trout lilies, and even Trillium) have returned in profusion. We're still working, every year: ...but now it's a much prettier view while we work! And in spring 2017, our Seasonal Technicians found some very special Trillium! In addition to our "normal" red Trillium (T. erectum) pictured above, they spotted the rare yellow-form (T. erectum f. luteum) and a return visit yielded a pale "salmon" red Trillium as well: Moral of the story: sometimes you don't know what you're saving until you've put in the work! All photos by ISN personnel, besides the 2 "special" Trillium photos by Bob Grzesiak (from the same site), used with permission because he's my dad.
