Saturday, March 23, 10 am - Early Spring in the Forest
Wahrani Nature Trail, New Kent
Join Helen Hamilton and Gus Hall searching the ravines, slopes and streams for everything
green in the different habitats in this park. Expect to see orchid plants, ferns, lichens,
clubmosses and many interesting moss and liverwort species, including the flat forms with
visible reproductive bodies. Spring flowers should be emerging - we may see Spring Beauty,
Pennywort, and early "weeds" in the front lawn such as henbit, bluets, speedwell, bittercress,
and dwarf dandelion. Dress for the weather and expect uneven trails and some muddy areas
along the trail.
Please register so that, in case the walk has to be re-scheduled because of inclement weather,
we will be able to let you know. To register, contact Helen Hamilton at 757 564 4494 or
