About the Event
By late summer the forest canopy has completely filled out and, while saplings like sassafras compete for light and nutrients, an understory community of wild ginger, partridgeberry, black and blue cohosh, and wild cucumber continues to thrive. At this time of year, sunny open fields might be speckled with bright orange butterfly weed, Joe-Pye-Weed and sumac stand tall along roadsides, and sometimes you can find native bitter herbs like turtlehead growing along the creek with drooping clusters of ripe elderberries nearby.
Join us on our last plant walk of the summer as we celebrate the abundance of the season while also preparing to welcome a whole new cycle of growth.
