Did you know most birds like our orioles migrate at night? Tonight is going to be a huge migration of birds heading south! Turn off any non-essential lights that could confuse them, and keep your kitties inside tomorrow when they come down to rest and re-fuel on their journey!

Here at Eden Mill we love the little things too! This fallen tree has turned into a beautiful habitat for smaller creatures and critters - like lichens and moss! Did you know lichens are actually mixtures of algae and fungus that co-exist together? Lichens first started growing on the Earth 400 millions years ago! Whoa! #edenmill #edenmillnaturecenter #lichen #moss #fungus #algae #nature #maryland #naturecenter #harfordcounty

All hail the Monarchs! These incredible butterflies have been laying eggs in our gardens and eating our milkweed all summer! They are known for their bright colors and extensively long migration path, which can span over 2,500 miles! The International Union for Conservation of Nature lists their migration as a “threatened phenomenon” status. Help us celebrate these beautiful creatures by creating your own Monarch migration at home with this awesome craft! 🦋🦋🦋

They're all grown up! The invasive Spotted Lanternfly has entered into its adult life stage.

If you haven't heard, the Spotted Lanternfly is a non-native species that feasts on over 70 different crops, like grapes, apples, peaches, hops, cucumbers, blueberries, oak, pine, and many others!

The Spotted Lanternfly was first confirmed in Pennsylvania in 2014 and has since spread throughout the region. Maryland confirmed its first Spotted Lanternfly in October 2018 and issued quarantine orders, that are still in effect, for Harford and Cecil Counties in October 2019.

If you come across this pest, snap a picture of it and then smash it. Report the sighting with photo attachments and location information to the Maryland Department of Agriculture at [email protected].

More information on the insect can be found here➡️ mda.maryland.gov/spottedlanternfly

If you find your tomato or potato plant disappearing in 2 days, it might be a hornworm caterpillar. Look for the giant frass droppings as the telltale sign! Nipped off branches are an indicator too. The almost invisible culprit is probably the Tobacco or Tomato Hornworm. These well camouflaged caterpillars develop from an egg that was laid on the terminal leaves of your plant during the night. The sphinx moth, aka Hornworm, enjoys laying eggs on all plants of the Solanaceae family. These big 2x4” moths are frequently found around night, security lights. Both the Tobacco and the Tomato Hornworm are native to the Eastern United States and their gregarious, larvae eat plant foliage, flowers and fruit!
The larvae of both moths have horns at the rear end of their green body. The Tobacco Hornworm has a red, pink or orange horn and is very common. The Tomato Hornworm has a black or blue horn and the caterpillar color may vary from the typical bright green to a brown tinge. Do not kill any caterpillar that has vertical white rice-like pellets sticking on its back. These white cocoons indicate many parasitic insects are slowly, consuming the caterpillar on the inside. If needed, pull that infected caterpillar off and feed it in a safe location so the parasitic insects develop and fly away.
No chemical control is needed for the hornworms. Just pick them off and dispose. You might need to look for then at night with a flashlight when they are easier to spot!

Mariner Point Park ADA Canoe/Kayak Launch Project Information:
We are excited to begin putting a floating canoe/kayak launch on the downstream leg of the boat launch area. Between now and the end of July, during the week there will be intermittent closures of one of the boat launches, but the other launches will remain open. Signage will be placed on site as well, alerting boaters to the situation. All of the in-water work for the project will take place after June 15th because of MDE restrictions and will continue until the project is complete. We have instructed our vendor that if it gets too busy to complete work during the day, to suspend their operations for the day. Note: There will be a few trees cleared to create a pull-off area for canoes & kayaks, about the size of two parking spaces. For every tree down, one will be planted elsewhere in the park.

What do these four pictures have in common? Their moms were trapped and relocated... only to have the homeowner find the screaming babies days later. Please educate your friends and neighbors who post for help trapping and relocating: we have safe, humane methods for you to discourage the mom from being in your shed/attic/under your porch. And if need be, we can refer you to a humane wildlife coorperator licensed to help. Our methods are painless and help save lives. #1 rule: if there is an animal close to/ in your home, guaranteed she has babies!
