Cedar Hollow Photo Workshop

Page Subtitle

October 27, 2012, J.T. Nickel Family Nature and Wildlife Preserve

The Cedar Hollow Watershed is nestled deep in a remote and pristine area of the preserve.

Great blue lobelia (Lobelia siphilitica) are native to northeastern Oklahoma and were in bloom during the hike through the woodland areas of the preserve.

Hamamelis vernalis, a species of Witch-hazel, was seen growing wild at the preserve. It is native to the Ozark Plateau in Missouri, Oklahoma and Arkansas.

The forested and woodland areas at the preserve provide a high moisture environment for mosses and liverworts to thrive as natural ground cover.

Great blue lobelia (Lobelia siphilitica) is a true-blue "perennial" and is aflutter with butterflies and hummingbirds in late summer.

When winter finally hits full-bore, the mantle of fallen leaves will help protect the woodland soil in Cedar Hollow from the eroding effects of wind and rain.

Surrounded by steep woodland slopes, the Cedar Hollow Watershed is a photographic haven in the fall.

As an understory tree, flowering dogwoods provide cover and food for many forest birds and animals.
