Metal Monstors in Dunn Woods

| 0 comments

Recently there has been a shift in policy concerning Dunn Woods, a more activist approach has been taken, and a lot of work (not all needed in my opinion) has gone on. A lot of the invasive euonymus has been removed (this is good), but so have a lot of the fallen branches, trees, and flowering plants that are native (this is bad). Our well-trained grounds crew has done a wonderful job working on our campus, it is beautiful, but they are not sensitive to the natural ecosystem contained in Dunn Woods.

Here are some pics of the crew not only removing fallen logs, but also compacting soil and scaring the be-jesus out of the local wildlife.

Tractor tracks compact the soil and hurt the underlying mycelial network
