September Hikes with GSWA


This September, GSWA is offering three evening hikes at our 73 acre wetlands restoration site, the "Conservation Management Area". What can you expect to see in September? Mushrooms and other fungi are plentiful this month. After the rains of August, you can be sure to find fungi of many shapes and colors poking up through the leaf litter. The wet meadow will offer the late-Summer blooms of the sunflower family of wildflowers; purple ironweeds, white bonesets and yellow goldenrods. Late summer insects will still be active and plentiful, beetles, solitary bees, and other pollinators are preparing for their Fall hibernation. Dragonflies like the swamp darner will be laying their eggs along the Silver Brook. Bird life will be very active as the Spring and Summer warblers will be heading back south so be on the lookout for both year-round birds and migrants.   Time: each…

October is a beautiful time to hike! GSWA's hiking series continues in October. The colors of fall are on full display - between changing leaves and the late blooming wildflowers there just so much to take in. What can you see on our hikes?

Be sure to look out for the panicled aster too, these look like an apartment complex of daisies, with small flowerheads that can be anywhere from white to baby pink or very pale purple. These flowers will be magnets for the year's remaining pollinators. Poison ivy will be changing colors and…
