A First Nation in western Manitoba has filed a lawsuit against the provincial government, claiming the province breached its constitutional duty to consult them about commercial logging operations in their traditional lands around Duck Mountain.
"The days of simply taking wealth from our mountain while our people cannot even get food for their families from our traditional lands are over," Pine Creek Chief Derek Nepinak said in a Tuesday release from the First Nation.
Members of Pine Creek — a First Nation on the southwestern side of Lake Winnipegosis, east of Duck Mountain Provincial Park — have relied on those lands for generations for hunting, trapping, fishing, gathering berries and medicines and growing gardens, the release says.

Wanted to do this for a while now, I found some really cool colour pallets for the main 12 posted by @friendly-emerald-emily a little bit ago and finally got around to actually making a little series with it (Been on a colour pallet kick lately whoop). I love Henry’s one it’s so dang pretty 😭
Kinda wanted to use some of their alternate outfits and older outfits on these for funnsies.

I hope today there is space for you. A moment between tasks, time to pause and reflect on how special and deserving you are of good things. I hope you find tiny miracles today, moments that reignite you. Remind you of who you are and that you can do anything you can dream of.
My moment was getting to enjoy the sunset after a day of cleaning, rearranging and studying.

The second snow of the year here. This is my favourite color combination to find when it is otherwise cloudy and gray.

Platismatia herrei
Herre's ragged lichen, tattered rag lichen
Can you believe people have the gall to describe P. herrei as "ragged?" When it is probably the most stunning thing I have seen today? The nerve, honestly. This foliose lichen has long, thin lobes that grow straight-up or drooping over. The lobe edges are covered in a thick layer of isidia (clonal propagules containing both algal and fungal components). The upper surface is typically a pale gray or green, sometimes turning brown after prolonged sun exposure. The lower surface is patchy white, gray, and brown with few rhizines. P. herrei grows on conifers in the Pacific NW of North America. And is beautiful and perfect and not ragged even a little bit.

Mixed madrone and Douglas fir forest. Madrones are midsized evergreen trees in the Ericaceae (heather) family. They typically grow in arid climates with rocky dry soils. They have lovely orange bark that naturally sheds from the trunk when the tree reaches maturity (also the trunk underneath is INCREDIBLY smooth and pleasant to touch). The leaves are thick and waxy and spirally arranged on the branches. Madrones typically grow in areas that burn regularly as part of the ecology. Though the bark is very thin and not good for fire defense, madrone saplings will quickly resprout after the fire has passed (trees adapted for fire regimes are so cool like…they really said “tis only a flesh wound” and bounce back).
Douglas firs are absolutely majestic S tier conifers that can get pretty flippin huge but my absolute favorite thing about them is that they aren’t actually fir trees. Like at all. Usually the key identification factor for a fir tree (Abies) is their needles and cones; the needles are soft and attach individually to the branches (instead of in clusters) and the cones grow upwards. Like toward the sky. Doug firs, on the other hand, have sharp needles and the cones grow down (and also have sharp lil spikes on em)
The real kicker for me is that the Latin genus for Doug firs, Pseudo-tsuga, means “false hemlock” (the genus Tsuga is the hemlocks) which ???? What?? Anyways yeah trees are cool but their classification and naming is uh…sometimes very confusing lol.

A First Nation in west-central Manitoba has filed a lawsuit calling for logging and forestry development in the Porcupine Provincial Forest and Kettle Hills area halted until meaningful consultation takes place.
"We're concerned about the future for the children," said Wuskwi Sipihk First Nation Chief Elwood Zastre.
In a notice of application filed in the Court of Queen's Bench on Wednesday, Wuskwi Sipihk First Nation asks for an order quashing or setting aside a one-year extension to an agreement between the Manitoba government and Louisiana-Pacific Canada Inc. that allows commercial logging to continue in the area.
"We care about our environment, we care about our animals," said Zastre. "That's what our ancestors wanted us to do, so now we are doing it. And if nobody is going to come consult with us then we have to step up for our people."
In a Wednesday news release, Zastre said the Manitoba government has allowed Louisiana-Pacific to build roads and harvest timber in Wuskwi Sipihk territory, for more than 16 years, "without upholding its obligations to consult under the Canadian Constitution."

Greenhouse Workers
Greenhouse worker’s need to unionize. They face high turnover and heat hazards. They need a union with flexible tactics, one that trains every worker to be an organizer, one with light dues and broad support.

Started my Forestry 101 class this week. Learning about the different types of forests and climates trees prefer in Michigan, alongside learning that the upper west peninsula is 90% trees while the southernmost portion of the lower peninsula is only 24% was FASCINATING.
I also learned that over a century trees tend to migrate about ~100 km (60 miles) north- which- WHAT?! 📝😱
Throwback photos to our time at Hurricane River Campground for our wedding anniversary last year- 10/10 would definitely recommend camping and hiking up there when the leaves are changing. 🍁

Something I want to see in fictional forests and forest creatures is an update on the ‘fire is their biggest weakness’ theme. Forests are adapted to fire, it’s part of the ecosystem, we should use that!!
Anyway what i’m saying is that perhaps that bloodthirsty Leshen may die when burned, but fire activates Leshen seedlings (just like lodgepole pine and many other tree species) and spawns twice as many as are killed so watch out! That forest witch is probably at their most powerful directly after a surface fire when all the deadweight has burned away. Forest Dryads definitely run prescribed burns on their land. Ents are thousands of years old and fire scars are likely a sign of respectability and strength not tragedy.
