7th Annual Great Goldenrod Search at Hatlem Creek Preserve — Sunday, September 20th, 1 – 3 PM
This is an annual walk in search of fall flowers with special focus on the different species of Goldenrod. Goldenrod is one of our most colorful native autumn flowers. The Ojibwa natives called it gizisomukiki or ‘sun medicine’ for its beautiful yellow color and healing power. The Latin term is Solidago meaning ‘to make whole’. Note the change in location to Hatlem Creek this year. Join Conservancy docents, Lou Ricord and Dave Amos, on their trek to locate and catalog the many species of Goldenrod and other wildflowers at one of the Conservancy’s newest preserves. Please no dogs on docent-led walks.
