September Hikes with GSWA

REGISTER

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.

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…

C'mon out for an exclusive, semi-private hike with GSWA to explore our Conservation Management Area (CMA). Many people have hiked our trails during the lockdown which have remained open for passive recreation. Perhaps you're one of them. But there's so much more to see, like all our recent restorations, as you tour the site with an insider. As we hike the trails of our 73-acre property, we'll share what is happening with wildlife during the summer months and talk about of the area's ecology. We'll also check out the marsh, upland beech forest and vernal wetlands. This is our pilot "COVID-19 response hike" and we will carefully manage registration. For…
