Update: location is confirmed. here is a map:,-87.595024&spn=0.025485,0.066047

The street address I have given, 12054 South Doty Avenue, is for a strip club called "The Factory" that is right there. Use this address if you need to plug something into your GPS. As you drive along the Frontage road, you won't see street numbers.

If you take exit 130, Doty Road (the frontage road) is clearly marked. Just get off the exit and immediately hook right back around onto Doty where you see signs for Doty Rd and a number of businesses located there. Come back 1 mile. Not sure about signage off exit 115.


This month we are collecting Phragmite Reed! Phragmite is a reed used for thatching in traditional building, but it has become invasive here in the US, in particular in the Great Lakes Region. Location TBD. Goggles, eyeglasses, sunglasses or other eye protection required. Waterproof shoes are very helpful but in an urban environment we can usually get away with standing on asphalt. Dress warmly as we will be outside! Pot luck car snacks! My cell is[masked]-6824. Call me the day of if you are having trouble finding us.

    We couldn't have had a more lovely day! We met new friends, we learned and we collected reeds in beautiful sunshine followed by warm hospitality. Thank you JP and Linda for the great welcome and amazing food! And thanks Heather as always for being so together and fun and getting us all out there. Great to get to know you all!

    I've just come back from the site, and the warm weather has accelerated the deterioration of the Phragmite. We are at the very end of the season. Phragmite is scraggly right near the best parking. We will walk up the road about 1/10 of a mile from where the parking is.

      ...where the phragmite is in better shape.

    Update - still scouting sites. At this point it looks like we are going with last year's site. Once I scout it to make sure all is still well with that location I will post it, but it is down the Bishop Ford a ways-
