Bring Mom and join us on a leisurely stroll through the south tract of Backus Woods. Colleen and Bernie will identify and discuss the diversity and natural history of spring ephemeral flowers along the wooded trail. We’ll see Trout Lily, Red and White Trillium, Hepatica, Jack–in–the–Pulpit, Wild Phlox and many other species. Meet at the Backus Woods parking lot on Concession 3 (by the Turkey Cairn) by 1 p.m. Questions? Contact Bernie at 519-427-9969.
Meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month, at the Simcoe Seniors Centre, Pond Street, in Simcoe. Doors open at 7:15 p.m., and the program begins at 7:30 p.m.
Various field outings are also planned throughout the year, and include trips to local conservation areas, bird banding, winter tree identification and much more. Field outings are free of charge.
