Join veteran RIWPS member Marnie Lacouture  for a gentle walk along Parris Brook, a short leg of the Mt. Tom Trail, to look for early blooming wildflowers. Parris Brook is a tributary of the Wood River in the Arcadia Management Area. If Mother Nature cooperates we will see trailing arbutus and marsh marigolds as well as ephemerals like wood anemone and American ginseng. Perhaps there will be some surprises.  

This free walk is limited to 12 people.

Preregistration is required.

Directions to the meeting place for this walk will be sent out to participants a few days before the walk.
