Flowers in the Forest

Longhill Swamp at Lafayette High School
Saturday April 13
10 am
Spring Beauty and Cinnamon Fern should be emerging along with Golden Ragwort, Pink Lady's Slipper and Adder's Tongue fern. Some of the more interesting mosses and liverworts are common, often growing on the paths.

The walk is on and off the trail and boardwalks and the bottomland can be muddy, so wear appropriate clothing for the habitat and weather. Meet Helen Hamilton in the parking lot at the front of Lafayette High School, which has easy access to the school's Nature Trail. Register with Helen Hamilton, 757/564-4494, or
