This small stream valley, mostly on private land, contains a diversity of species: spring beauty, fringe tree, blackhaw viburnum, arrowwood, mapleleaf viburnum, spicebush, oak, hickory, red maple, dogwood, black gum, ash, tulip tree, beech, wild geranium, false solomon's seal, bedstraw, jack-in-the-pulpit, mayapple, New York fern, sensitive fern, blackberry, and sedges. This is the 3rd year that we will explore this area, to add to our survey of its flora and note changes over time.

Leader:  Heidi Pringle


Notes:   A climb down a small steep hill is necessary to enter the forest.

There are only animal trails, and participants are asked to be very careful not to step on the native plants.

Leader has not encountered any deer ticks, just one dog tick, but tick populations change each year.  Please take precautions for ticks. 

Wear long pants, since there is an area with poison ivy that must be crossed. 

Bring:  Recommended: pad and pencil or pen, rain gear, hand lens, boots. 

Cancellation Policy: In the event of heavy rain, the walk will be held the following Tuesday at the same time.  Please call if in doubt about cancellation.
