i got given a task last week to write a 500 word essay for my geography a level but had work every fucking night and other homework, and as you do i just kept postponing it. well its due in the morning and i seen what 4chan can do with an english essay due in the morning so i was wondering if the people of /out/ could help.

Japanese maple is beautiful in summer and fall. Grows not so tall and really free of care.
Japanese persimmon is also free of care and bears really big and pretty fruits. They are very sweet and delicious. You don't have to do anything. Just plant and wait for the November.
If you love flowers, I recommend Japanese camellia. This tree needs occasional pruning but the flower is absolutely beautiful.

Studying LA in the US right now. Senior year. Worked in a firm for an internship over the summer, did a lot of autocad and photoshop work and went out on some sites. Firm is a residential/commercial/institutional design office, only 5 employees.

Job was okay, pretty boring but I was doing entry level work. However I do know that the owner made a lot of money from it. But, that's his own business and he's worked it out. Not everyone turns out like that, just depends how hungry you are I guess.

I'll graduate, then I'll probably take the LARE and see what happens after that.

My gay uncle and his partner are landscape architects. From what I can tell, his main duties include telling Mexicans what to do and collecting fat stacks of cash.

For a 2 man operation he is really raking it in. He also owns a backhoe and possibly a dumptruck.

yo dude, MS Plant Bio student here with a graminoid fetish. getting a handle on the tribes is a first great step to knowing your way around the Poaceae. a great book to start out with is Agnes Chase's First Book of Grasses (https://www.amazon.com/Agnes-Chases-First-Book-Grasses/dp/1560986565). I was where you were a few years ago and this lil book answered all my questions. local library may have a copy. it's been published since like 1930 because ya can't improve on it.

graduate into Carex/Cyperaceae when you're done--that's tha real shit

At least in California we have Calflora maintained by one of the UCs. Not sure if your state has similar.

We also have the California Native Plant Society for online and in person.

Otherwise you could key things out with the Jepson Manual.

M.S. Ecology here. It is a rare pleasure to hear another anon talk about that poaceae. I did my masters work on grassland biodiversity. Now Ive got visions of bouteloua and sorghastrum dancing through my head.

I must say, my lawn is extremely biodiverse. If I were to allow it to grow up to maturity, I'd have wild salad greens to last all year; except winter. Though, I do harvest seeds and have fresh salad microgreens/sprouts indoors in winter. I think there's also 6-8 obviously different types of grass.

After doing some pipeline work in my yard, some gas pipeline guys wanted to spread straw then seed with "tall" fescue, but I told them "no" since I already had Panicum anceps on hand, plus many wild salad green seeds saved up from plantago to stellaria. I wouldn't want to wreck my possible grazing farmland with tall fescue after all.

I am a guy from a tropical country living in Canada for almost two years. Last winter I was too scared do any hiking. But this summer I spent almost every opportunity I got in /out/ and I don't want to be cooped up for the six months of winter.
Any advice from winterbros about hiking in Canadian Rockies in the winter and not dying?
What gears do I need?
Also for someone who never stepped on a ski, how easy is it to learn cross-country skiing? Can I learn by buying an old pair off kijiji and trying them on my own?

Also winter hiking general. Post pretty pics and scary stories if you have them.

Winter hiking is fantastic. You'll want trekking poles and micro spikes for traction on widely used trails. If you're on less used trails you'll need to break trail yourself with snowshoes. Expedition height gaiters are also a good choice as they make snow trudging and postholing significantly more pleasant.

I can’t wait for winter this year, I love winter hiking. Did my first winter scrambling last year, pic related.

Gonna go stay in a bothy in the middle of nowhere in December, hike by day then sit by the fire and read in the evenings.

Hey /out/, Kinda new to this board but I think I have lurked long enough to make a thread. Anyways I was wondering what are some way one could get a job with the NFS/NPS prior to completing college or even afterward. I am currently going to begin volunteering but I live in LA and there are not a lot of options for people who are into forestry or the outdoors out of a handful of volunteer organizations. Is there somethin I Am missing or should I just move once I graduate, outside of this volunteer programs I would like to start getting my foot in the door.

Also does anyone know good places to camp out near portland? I am going to be there for a week

call ranger stations and ask. They hire lots of seasonals.

My understanding is that even the bottom-rung USFS jobs are a step up from entry level, so to speak. So it's helpful to have some relevant experience. Trail work with CCC or Americorps, maybe fighting fire for a private contractor, landscaping, something to do with OHVs or pack animals if the positions you're looking at involve those things, etc etc.

I've got a similar situation. Currently in college, I'd like to work in a National Park or firewatch just for a month or so during the summer, not interested in working for them fulltime but it's something I would love. Any way this is possible?
>>
>>1122293
Why would they hire someone who was only going to be there for a month when there are hundreds of people who would go for the entire 6 month seasonal? Also, it’s not like they can just up and hire someone right after you quit. The whole process can take like a month to 6 weeks, you’d be fucking them over for whatever project you were hired to do.
>>
>>1122293
yeah just a months isn't gonna happen. You gotta commit for AT LEAST 2 months to make it anyone's while.
>>
>>1122270
>They hire lots of seasonals
this is exactly how most government workers start off. Get a seasonal position and make yourself indispensable.

also helps to be a veteran disabled in combat that has a bachelors or better. Or some necessary industrial or law enforcement skills.
