Calcaeous fen in Weinland Park by the railroad tracks a willow spring

Some seepy areas have appeared in this area between E. 5th and E. 11h by the railroad tracks. The most interesting, at least to me, is the willow spring next to the the railroad embankment. It is about half way in. I was thinking of transplanting some queen of the prairie, which I am going to move anyway. This has a little bit of the native moss, not a bad green not that blackish green sort and that could turn to peat. Some of,this is deadbeat land, some is all shale, it is,one of those brown land toxic waste sites. There are direct plans to develop it, which means taking out the last retaining pond and a long drainage ditch along Grant. Is this seep calcareous?. There are heaps of shale here and there. By the way, some people thought queen of the prairie was introduced very early from some area lost to mining in the 1500 somewhere in Eurasia. There is a grass used for thatch nearby and that could designate an early homestead or may have been planted in the fifties or sixties. Is this calcareous? Does it have calcium carbonate? I really do not know.

Hiking with our dog, we got into a nest of brown dog ticks. Our vet confirmed they are ticks and is guessing they are brown dog ticks. They are tiny, not one quarter the size of pinhead. We have washed all our bedding, clothes, dog pillows and sprayed advantage on the furniture and rugs that our dog has been near. Our dog is on Bravecto and our vet recommended a spray also, so we sprayed him with advantage treatment. What additional lengths should we pursue?
