Monthly Walk at Great Meadows - July

Saturday, July 9, 8-10:30 am
Downy swamp milkweed
A continuing series of monthly walks exploring the landscape, plants, and seasonal wonders of Great Meadows NWR in Concord

Flowers are featured in July as the early weeks of summer roll out a breathtaking carpet of bloom.  We'll roam the Dike Trail enjoying a profusion of showy tick-trefoil, swamp milkweed, white sweet clover, blue vervain, and meadowsweet blossoms.  Beautiful insects, too numerous to mention, will dazzle us along the way.  Remember your sun protection.  Cameras and binoculars are welcome.

No pre-registration required.  A $5/person voluntary donation will be gratefully accepted.

Led by Cherrie Corey, local naturalist and photographer

Co-sponsored by Musketaquid Arts and Environment Program
and Friends of the Assabet river NWR

Meet at Great Meadows NWR in Concord, MA
(Monson Road, off Rte. 62, driveway on left where road cureves right)
