lockwise from top left: i Canoeists navigate the Huron River; a popu-
lar way to enjoy the autumn beauty of the Arboretum. J Jen Zoom
and Madeleine Watkins share a relaxing moment. J A circle of Fairy
Ring Mushrooms, named after the fairies people once believed danced in
them, are discovered off a trail betweeen the main valley and Appalachian
Glen. 0 David Merkey, an Arboretum caretaker and graduate student in
Landscape Architecture, pulls out the very prolific Honeysuckle and
Buckthorn, which choke the growth of native tree species if not controlled.
Joe Howard, also an Arboretum caretaker and graduate student in
Landscape Architecture, collects seeds to aid future restoration of Dow
Prairie to presettlement days. D This inviting trail was made last weekend by
the Huron Valley Boyscouts, who are among many other volunteer organiza-
tions who help maintain the trail.
