Juglans nigra at Celery Bog Park

Here is a new black walnut sapling along the back trail on the west side of Celery Bog Park.  This part of the park is more or less being maintained as a prairie habitat.  Once farmland, when the park was created, prairie plants were added in a prairie restoration effort.  Despite this, walnut trees are sprouting here and there.  If left to itself, this area might return to forest.
