Vacant lot by the Holland Tunnel

I was shopping a the 14th st garden center and I noticed I field behind which had a lot of goldenrod. The property was surrounded by Japanese Knotweed along the perimeter. However, the knotweed had not taken over a majority of the property yet was filled in the many different plants. The knotweed also kept out the tree-of-heaven which was encroaching on the edges, covered in spotted lantern fly.

Sunday Afternoon Walk at Chestnut Hill Reservoir

Today, I went for a walk by the Chestnut Hill Reservoir. Unlike my last nature walk, the temperature today was much cooler and the wind was steady and strong at around 12 miles per hour. The reservoir surface was rippling. It was still nice to get outside and enjoy some fresh air before the sun goes down. On my walk, I encountered several cases of stereum, all located on different trees scattered throughout the woods. I also saw a few mushrooms at the base of a large oak tree. I saw lich...

I walked around Cambridge and around Harvard's campus. I originally walked around Harvard Square and I didn't find any fungi, but I walked onto the campus and found a wide variety of fungi surrounding the trees. The weather was around 45 degrees, and it was very windy outside. I walked for at least 45 minutes and I noticed that I was only able to find mushrooms around trees that were moist, or with dark soil. After a while, I was able to know which trees would have fungi around them base...

Houghton Garden Walk on Oct 2, 2022

I walked for around 40 minutes in the Houghton Garden Conservation in Newton. The weather was quite cool, and it was overcast. It didn't really matter because there was mostly total tree coverage along the different paths. I could tell that the season is turning to fall as many of the leaves had just began to turn in shade to an orange color, however, there was still flowering plants around. The colder weather could also explain why I saw no animals around. Besides the trees, much of the...

Walk to End Alzheimer's

Hi folks, I'll be participating in the Walk to End Alzheimer's this year. As some of you know, my father suffers from Alzheimer's. Because it runs in families, I may face it myself as I grow older.

Please don't feel any pressure to donate, but if you're able to consider a tax-deductible donation towards a good cause this year, here's my fundraising page:

What a gift iNaturalist has been in my life, and sharing the excitement of my 1,000th observation with @greatspaceflamingo was also a gift (as she got me into this wonderful adventure only a little over a year ago)!

Nature Walk 1-Gabriel Valadez

I went and walked around the Houghton Garden area for approximately 45 minutes. I would say that earlier the weather was only mildly cold and only mildly windy and was perfectly acceptable to go for an outdoors stroll. When I was there I was taken aback by how green the area itself was and how many different types of plant life that were present. I was impressed and in awe with the many different types of fungi growing throughout the entirety of the garden and how diverse they were for b...

Ranges of species

The 5Cryptomys species were previously regarded as a single species Cryptomys hottentotus, but have sufficient DNA differences to justify species status.
They can currently only be distinguished by DNA according to the fundies (although earlier taxonomists recognized them as subspecies before DNA techniques).
The are probably allopatric and can thus be identified by their locality, although specific limits still need to be determined.

General comments

The rabbitbrush is flowering again in the Albuquerque area, and I was able to get out to go nature hunting for the first time in several weeks. The most common species I saw on rabbitbrush were Painted Lady and Chauliognathus lewisi, with the latter being quite abundant and gregarious on certain individual plants. Lots of similar observations from NM are being added to the project, which is great to see. A big thanks to

First iNaturalist Nature Walk - Pine Tree Preserve/Chestnut Hill Reservoir

This afternoon, I went on a walk around the the Pine Tree Preserve and eventually walked around the Chestnut Hill Reservoir for the first time since I have arrived on campus. It was a very gloomy and slightly chilly day. The Pine Tree preserve was the most interesting path I've ever taken. Surprisingly, I saw a few Eastern Gray Squirrels sprinting across the green. I saw a few shrubs growing nearby the tree stomps. By the time I got to the reservoir, it was surrounded by trees that were...

First Nature Walk

For my nature walk, I travelled to Stoneham and walked on a trail that edges the Unicorn Golf Course. The trail was very scenic and wooded and I saw many different species of plants and animals along the way. On my walk the weather was slightly chilled, but still seasonal at about 60-65 degrees and partly cloudy. It was also pretty windy that day as well. Along the walk I saw various different types of plants (some of which I have linked to this post). In particular, I noticed that the r...
