On Saturday, May 2 at 10:00 a.m., Bill Horne will lead a Wildflower Walk to see and identify wildflowers and native plants on the lovely Bontatibus Property. Meet at the parking lot at 149 Northford Road. Take Mill Plain Road from East Main Street to the intersection with Queach Road (first stop sign, about 0.8 miles). Continue straight on Northford Road about 0.6 miles to the meeting place. (Rain date: Sunday, May 3rd).
The walk is less than a mile, generally gently rolling with a couple of steep pitches, a couple of narrow stream crossings stepping on rocks. Dogs on leash OK. Should be good for ages five and older; younger kids are welcome if parents are prepared to carry them across streams and up steep sections. For all BLT walks, please wear appropriate dress and comfortable, supportive walking shoes. Bring water. Walking sticks welcome. For more information call (203) 415-1571.
