As the first Thursday of July falls on the holiday, we have moved our July walk to the second Thursday of the month.
Our walk will follow a loop trail within the Burlingame State Management Area in Charlestown. Led by botanist Beth Dickson, we will explore a path that crosses small streams within an oak and red maple forest. If time allows, we will also observe wetland species along the roadside where Poquiant Brook crosses the road. Some species we expect to see include Lysimachia quadrifolia (whorled yellow loosestrife), and Gaylussacia baccata (black huckleberry).
We will meet at the Burlingame North Trailhead Parking Area on Buckeye Brook Rd. Directions below. Also please note that there is limited parking so we recommend you carpool if you can.
This walk is a part of our First Thursday Botanizing Series. See our Botanizing Walks home page for important details about these walks and other types of walks that we offer. Do note our new walk series for Members!
