Signs of Spring Hike @ the Refuge

March 13 at 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge – Orange Trailhead

This hike is free to the public;

donations are appreciated from non-members: $10/adult, $5/child

Step outside for this relaxing, family-friendly, guided tour of the Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge’s Orange Trail. Enjoy a Spring preview in the great outdoors – the red-winged blackbirds and eastern phoebes are the first to get the memo that it’s time to return and start nesting, while woodpeckers and spring peepers make their presence known more by sound than by sight. Some of our forest critters will also be scampering about. We will catch witch hazel in bloom, skunk cabbage beginning to emerge, and depending on our winter, the pussy willow may be bursting its buds. Additionally, non-native plants like crocuses and snowdrops will be starting to bloom. These are all indicators that Spring is on the way. This trail can get super wet/muddy, so muck boots/wellies are recommended. The full hike will be under two miles. GSWA members: Free, non-members: donation appreciated.

 

We will meet at the end of Meyersville Rd, Green Village (83 Meyersville Rd is the closest street address).
