Wildflower Walk with Naturalist Carol Gracie
Sat, May 13, 2017, 1:00 PM – 3:00 PM EDT
Join Carol Gracie, renowned naturalist and author of "Spring Wildflowers of the Northeast: A Natural History" (Princeton University Press), for a spring wildflower walk in Taconic State Park, Copake Falls, NY.
Carol Gracie looks beyond the surface beauty of trilliums and trout lilies, baneberry and blue cohosh—into their life histories, their lore, and even their cultural uses. With Carol's expert guidance, we will observe the native flora along the Iron Works Trail, an easy, nearly level path that parallels beautiful Bash Bish Brook. Carol shares a special understanding of who pollinates what, and what role these plants play in their environment in our Northeastern forests. Prepare to be informed, and amazed.

We will meet in the parking area of the Historic Copake Iron Works (33 Valley View Road, Copake Falls, NY 12517) to begin our walk.
