Congress Features:


Ted Black Woods Tour: Ted Black Woods in located off Van Atta Road in Meridian Township, about a mile North of East Grand River Avenue. Ted Black Woods is a 75-acre deciduous woodland with associated wetlands. Stuart Gage requested access to these woods from Meridian Parks in order to deploy Wildlife Acoustics Song Meters (SM2) there near three wetlands. The Song Meters record every 30 minutes for 1-minute duration. You can see and hear recordings from Ted Black Woods at: Ted Black passed away on 30 November 2007 at age 93. Black did postdoctoral research at the University of Wisconsin with Aldo Leopold, considered the founding father of wildlife ecology. Ted Black was an expert birder and published Birds of Michigan with Gregory Kennedy and Ted Nordhagen in June, 2003. We will walk along s portion of the trails and hear the sounds of a Michigan June Morning. You will be provided with recordings from three sites during May.

Legg Park Tour: Legg Park is located off Van Atta Road in Meridian Township, South of East Grand River Avenue. In 1979, 70 acres were acquired from Louis and Joan Legg (55 acres donated and 15 acres purchased).  An additional 31.7 acres were purchased from the Legg Family.  In 1994, Dr. Mason and Christine Cobb donated 1.58 acres.  Many of the park’s trails follow the Red Cedar River and many parts of the park are within the Red Cedar River’s flood plain. Ash trees dominated the park but you will see what an insect, the Emerald Ash Borer, can do to a forest wetland. We will walk along a portion of the trails and hear the sounds of a Michigan June Morning. Stuart Gage spend many hours in this riparian forest before the advent of digital recorders.
