Autumn at Long Pond
Tuesday, October 8, 9:15 - 11:30 am
Long Pond Parking Lot, opposite #532 South Border Rd, Winchester
Leader: Boot Boutwell
We will take a walk to Long Pond searching for plants that are still in flower as well as plants that are in fruit. We’ll also look for winter weeds, those hardy herbaceous (non-woody) plants whose skeletons decorate the autumn and winter landscape. The walk will focus on plant ID as well as fun and interesting natural history. Perhaps we’ll see a few witches and skeletons getting ready for Halloween!
Meet at the Long Pond parking lot on South Border Rd. (opposite #532) in Winchester. Steady rain cancels.
