Just to give the near-zero heads-up, I have to go to Nacogdoches either the 5th of next month, or some day the week of the 16th, to select sites for a wetland training I'm doing in early August (what horrible time of year to have folks in the field...).
The folks at the experimental forest there said the closed depressions look great and were full of plants and critters (frogs, salamanders, newts...) the last time they did work in those areas. So, if anyone wanted to head out to a place that is generally not accessible here's an opportunity. The cathch is that by the time I head that way the depressions may have dried up. Davemonkey stated he can't make it, but I'll be looking to collect him some L.pilosa. Kevin Christy may or may not be able to make it, but he is looking for the same species.
I am going to see if I can find any newts that are seeking assylum for Michael
Anyway, there you have it. I guess it's a pretty good drive for so little notice and during such a horrible time of year, but I have (or "get" rather) to go regardless and figured I'd be neighborly.
