Description

Tropical Park pineland, one day post burn. A very small part at the southern end of the preserve was still burning but most of the fire was completely out/not hot. This is a pine rockland habitat, dependent on fire to keep the mostly open canopy consisting of only slash pine and the rich diversity of native grasses, shrubs and forbs as an understory. For more info about the importance of fire in pine rocklands, see here: https://www.miamidade.gov/environment/library/brochures/pine-rocklands.pdf
& here: https://www.miamidade.gov/environment/pine-rocklands.asp

This pineland had been taken over by many invasive plants due to fire suppression and unfortunately also infiltrated by cats (there are probably hundreds of cans of cat food in some parts of this preserve thanks to people feeding the cats). I am hoping to volunteer with EEL to help clean up and also pull up any invasive plants that pop up. I came back on Monday, May 17th, five days post burn, and noticed an area with lots of rosary pea (Abrus precatorius) dropping fruit/seed in part of the preserve.

It is unclear to me how the fire started but my understanding is the fire department came and initially was planning on putting the fire out (even hosing down some of it) but then thankfully let it burn out on its own. I thought I heard it was a prescribed burn but based on how the news reported on it, that doesn't seem to have been the case.

Link to news article about the fire: https://wsvn.com/news/local/miami-dade/part-of-tropical-park-catches-fire-near-soccer-field/

My goal here was to sort of map the burn via iNaturalist, showing the state of plants in different parts of the preserve. I was very careful not to bring any seeds in on my shoes/socks/clothes! I unfortunately really goofed and did not have my phone geotagging my observations. I had to estimate the locations so basically all of my work of photographing the plants did not work out the way I planned. My impression is that there was a substantial area that was not burned a bit west of the path that goes north/south through the preserve. I thought I was documenting the location but, again, I must've accidentally turned off the geotagging feature on my phone's camera. When I came back the following Monday (five days post burn), it seemed like this island of green had been burned, so I am wondering if EEL had a fire crew come out and burn areas that were leftover.

All my observations from this day: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations?nelat=25.788490133153903&nelng=-79.94006956842279&on=2022-05-12&order=asc&order_by=observed_on&place_id=any&swlat=25.618346976274324&swlng=-80.63735808160638&user_id=joemdo

Seen at County Line Scrub Preserve during a field trip held by the Dade Chapter of the Florida Native Plant Society (FNPS) led by Steve Woodmansee. Very nice seeing @kuchipatchis after 3+ years! Cool plants and bugs here... would love to come back and explore the interior of the preserve. As Steve mentioned, this site is due for a burn :-)

The focus was a pineland recently purchased by EEL (the Environmentally Endangered Lands program) and we were specifically there to document insects. It was pretty windy, around 12 knots out of the northwest, which may have impacted the amount of insects around. Sunny with temps around 80-81.
