Wilder Side of Oakland County
Autumn olive, Elaeagnus umbellata, is a story of good intentions gone bad. This fast growing native shrub of Asia was first introduced to the United States in the 1830’s for erosion control, wind breaks, and as a food source for wildlife. It now covers large swaths of the American countryside and is one of the most prolific and rapidly spreading invasive species found in Oakland County. In some sections of our county, and along the shoulders of I-75, it creates nearly impenetrable thickets.
“Ford Arts, Beats & Eats was founded to celebrate the quality of life in Oakland County by offering a culturally unique presentation of artists, musicians and food exhibits, from the Metro Detroit area, and throughout the United States.”

WILDER SIDE OF OAKLAND COUNTY
Heat and humidity has accelerated the growth of fall mushrooms in the woodlands of Oakland County. Many species are very attractive; some are delicious while others are deadly or hallucinogenic. One sweet smelling species is now emerging in Oakland County that will land you in the Emergency Room with very serious intestinal distress, faster than one can say, “Oops, I thought it was a Chanterelle.”
