This is an annual walk in search of fall flowers with special focus on identifying the different species of Goldenrod.  Added this year will be a secondary focus on identifying ferns and mushrooms (those with these skills are encourage to attend).  Bring your hand lenses and ID books.

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’.

Join Conservancy docents, Lou Ricord, Dave Amos and Kathy Ricord, on this nature trek through one of the Conservancy’s highest floristic quality preserves.   Please no dogs on docent-led walks. NOTE: There are many wet spots at Hatlem Creek; boots or waterproof shoes are advised.
