Bog Boardwalk Nature Walk

On Saturday, October 3rd, Professor Emerita Christa Schwintzer will be leading a fall plant walk along the boardwalk in Orono, located in the Rolland F. Perry City Forest. Throughout the walk participants will observe changes that plants undergo during the fall, allowing them to survive the winter and then quickly resume growth in the spring. Participants will also be exposed to examples of bog plant adaptations that allow them to live in the wet, low nutrient conditions where most other plants are not able to survive.
The walk will take place from 9-10:30 am, starting at the beginning of the boardwalk, and it is free! Space is limited to 12 participants and registration is required. If you are interested, please email with “Boardwalk nature walk” on the subject line, your name, and a telephone number where you can be reached in case of foul weather.
All are welcome to attend!
