Join Tysh McGrail and Graham Gardner on our last Botanizing Walk in 2015. This Glocester Land Trust Property, characterized by American Beech, Oak and White Pine woodlands, is bisected by ledge, vernal pools and narrow streams. The land trust trails all wind up and through a beautiful open meadow that should yield some interesting late season seed heads. The diverse topography on this site is inspiring in every season and the history of the land use on this early New England farm affects the plant communities we will discover.
Moderate terrain: water bottle, hand lens and plant guides recommended.
We will meet up in the Steere Hill parking area, located on the south side of Putnam Pike, Route 44. If you are traveling on the Putnam Pike from Route 295, this parking ares is slightly before the Harmony Post, located the north side of Putnam Pike.
This walk is a part of our First Thursday Botanizing Walk Series.
