First Thursday Botanizing Walk – Simmons Mill Pond

October 6 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Solidago sempervirens (seaside goldenrod), GGardner

Simmons Mill Pond in Little Compton offers a variety of habitats within a short distance. Guided by Dennis Webster, RIWPS member and board member of the Taylor Point Restoration Association, we will walk through coastal oak-holly forest that once was farmland and woodlots, and then cross the dam to explore the pond shore and brookside meadows. The area is home to nodding ladies tresses (Spiranthes cernua), many species of ferns, including grape and chain-ferns, and an array of goldenrod and asters.

We will meet in the parking lot at
