First Thursday Botanizing: Arcadia Management Area

November 1 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Join us for our last Botanizing Walk of the season. Our focus begins to turn from the green of summer and the glory of fall to the quieter colors that will be with us through the winter. We will explore plant structure, seeds, berries, bark, any remaining leaves and more at an inholding in the Arcadia management area. Marnie Lacouture, native plant enthusiast and veteran RIWPS member, will lead participants on trails on their property, an old farm, which borders the Wood River. Do wear fluorescent orange as a precaution. See directions below.

This walk is a part of our First Thursday Botanizing Walk Series. See our Botanizing Walks home page for important details about these walks.  See you in April when this 2019 walk series will resume!
