If you have come across a video short via e-mail, Youtube, etc., or if you yourself have created a video and would like to share it with me and those who pass, you can leave a link in the "comments" below.
That is, after you have posted the video and published your post (to the Internet), copy and paste the permalink here in the comment box. It will auto turn into a clickable link back to your blog.
If you know not what a permalink is or how to find it; it is the link to a specific post on your blog, not your general blog address. To find the permalink address, click on the title of your published post on your blog site. The URL that displays in the address bar will be the permalink for that post. You can now highlight it, cut it and paste it here in the "comment" section. Easy peasy.... :-)
for those who are having a hard time reading the pictured post:
The area you are looking at is a Pitch Pine / Sand Barren.
Typically “Barrens” feature large open sandy areas with interspersed with areas where there are a few pitch pines, scrub oak and white pine.A number of insects, including rare Tiger Beetles, have evolved to depend on the open sandy areas for habitat.There is evidence that barrens like this once covered a large part of this preserve. Unfortunately the open sand barrens are disappearing as white pines and pitch pines encroach on them turning them into forests like the one you see behind you.Historically such areas were kept open by wild fires, but in recent years fire has been repressed.
Since burning this area was not an option, the R.I. office of The Nature Conservancy has been manually removing trees in an attempt to approximate the effects of a wildfire and open up some of the area.We have used volunteer work crews to cut down and haul away small pines and oaks. If you are interested in learning more about this project and how you might help, call The Nature Conservancy at 331-7110.
