>>>I was just out at the Oak Openings project this weekend... They're
to do some wet prairie sampling and begin compiling a list of "The Fishes of
the Oak Openings". They've seen a lot of pickerel so far this year
(probably spawning) because the water table has returned to normal with the
EPA closing a quarry that had so many violations that when they showed up to
issue his fines, he just ceased and desisted and asked if that would be
"called good". So they're very excited to see what is out there. As am I,
as the wet prairie had standing water last year as of October.<<<

Our crew will plan to hit floodplain pools of the Mississippi to look for
Eurasian carps and alligator gar (that "Keep 'em Native" theme). It would
be nice to have a coordinated effort so we could report to the website. Are
any others planning to sample a wetland ?
