Field Notes

Field notes track the story of MPG North through photographs and brief interpretation.  Field notes update MPG staff and the public about on-going restoration and outreach efforts.  Each note also highlights the plants and wildlife – from microscopic species to megafauna - that occur at the property.  The collection of field notes since 2007 documents the changing landscape and seasons at MPG North and the surrounding region in the Swan Valley.
