July 18, 2016: Canadian Milk Vetch

Clumps of Canadian Milk Vetch (Astragulus canadensis) are turning up in many areas of the Park.  This member of the legume family (Fabaceae) provides a nectar source to many bee species and is also a food source for some mammals (ie. White-tailed Deer & Eastern Cottontails). 7/18/16 (Wolf. Oesterreich)
