Fall Botany Walk  - Hudson Mills Metropark

Fall Botany Walk  - Hudson Mills Metropark

Sunday, Sept. 23 at 2:00 – 4:00 p.m.

Meet in River Grove parking lot.    (At tollbooth, turn right, and continue straight ahead to parking lot)

Leaders are Ron Gamble and Faye Stoner.

We will walk at a leisurely pace, mostly on asphalt trail, and actually not travel very far.  We will look at plants found just off the trail, but we will also walk a bit away from the trail at times to see things closer to the Huron River.  There are vines we will see, including Wild Yam, Moonseed, and our native Lonicera vine; we will look at several shrubs including Euonymus atropurpureus (our native Euonymous), Hazelnut, Witchhazel, and Bladdernut; and we will look at some fall wildflowers including various asters.
