Visiting Devils Hopyard State Park

Of note

As Ranger Russ mentioned in this program, the holes in a tree left behind by a Yellow Bellied Sapsucker tend to be in somewhat of a straight line. The holes left behind by other woodpeckers are randomly scattered.

  • Pollution – something harmful introduced into the environment.
