Day 1 CNC 21: Gerhart Between the Raindrops

Not the driest day for going out to log wild species for science, my friend and fellow prairie fairy poked me to join her at what used to be the Gerhart Prairie, surrounding ditches, roadside etc. After waiting out a significant downpour under the minivan's lift gate, we hit the field in typical naturalist style bioblitz style shooting as many wild species as we could in an hour or so for the City Nature Challenge. We got only slightly wet.

Bonus for me: there was a nice patch of self heal in the ditch, and since it was we enough, a few of those plants made it home with me to restore my own backyard prairie habitat. One day down, three to go! Now if it would just stop raining ...
