|Barb and Sue bag a plant|
We meet at the Watershed Center with our bags, magnifiers and resource books and start down the two mile trail, identifying every species of plant we encounter. Occasionally even our guru Linda will be stumped (surely not!) and a specimen goes into the bag for further keying out.
|Indian Strawberry- Duchesnea indica|
We plan to prepare a resource list for visitors hiking the trails. On the Valley Water Mill trail, visitors can hike along wetlands, woodlands, springs, and karst features. With a resource list as a guide, they will be able to identify a wide variety of native plants in their natural setting. They will also learn some of the invasive species that may be living in their neighborhood.
