Michigan wildfire near Grayling now 100% contained

Fire crews in Michigan continued putting out hot spots within the Wilderness Trail Fire burn area on Tuesday as local roads reopened. 
The Michigan DNR said in a release on Tuesday evening that the fire, estimated at 2,418 acres in size, is now 100% contained. The DNR is asking people to stay away from the area in Crawford County’s Grayling Township to give fire crews space to finish their work.

Long-term project is bringing prairie back to remote places of the Loess Hills in Iowa

“Limb’n and chunk’n in pieces your swampers can move,” yelled Doug Chafa in what sounded like secret code known only to the 30 or so select people who happened to be dressed in chainsaw chaps, long sleeve shirts, hard hats and gloves.
Today’s project was to clear cedar trees off a portion of Turin Wildlife Area east of the RT Reese Homestead that would allow the native remnant prairie to return to the hills. Here, work is done by hand – it’s labor intensive and slow – the goal is to clear an acre, maybe two, before noon.

Ohio Insider: Research looks at potential relationship between antibiotics and algae blooms in Lake Erie

About 1.2 million killograms of antibiotics are produced for U.S. agriculture purposes each and every year. And, up to 90% of those drugs can be excreted without being metabolized by livestock. In the environment, those pharmaceuticals can lead to human health risks such as antibiotic resistance, as well as damage to local ecosystems when that manure is applied to land.
The foregoing was part of the take-home message from an Ohio Sea Grant Freshwater Science webinar featuring Laura Johnson in late May.
