Two neighbors came and asked to scrap the old stove and various metal objects out of the dumpster.
Located Matelea gonocarpus along the creek.  It was blooming, has an interesting flower in a dark greenish yellow star with a chocolate brown star in the center.  The petals are thick and waxy, shiny.  There is a seed pod, very interesting shape with fins along the length.   Erected bamboo tripods in order to locate the plants again.  Found a rudbeckia species in the bottomland near the creek, Rudbeckia fulgida?  Posted 250 feet of no trespassing signs up at Turkey Hill where the ATV incursions had happened.  Mike and I put a small cable across the road where the intruders have been coming in.
