Our September Wildflower Creek Walk was a great success. "I had a wonderful time," said Donna Drury, SCC member. "I learned you really need to get out of your car and walk to see the many flowers that you miss just driving by. I want to go again."
Twelve SCC members (including 3 children) and eight ONPS members turned out for a beautiful day along the creek. We stoped to look at outgrowths of dittany and jewelweed on the way in. We parked in a field at the Rooney property, then spent an hour walking along the dirt road that runs by Lucky Spring. We found flowering spurge, asters, trefoil and more, sharing our knowledge. Lynn Michaels of ONPS plucked a ripe passion flower fruit hanging from a vine along a fence. She broke it open, and we all tasted the sweet pulp.
Around noon we enjoyed lunch and socializing along the creek. Several took out kayaks to explore up-close the beautiful clear water and flowers such as blue mist and cardinal flowers. "Everyone had a really good time," said Mike Nelson, head of ONPS field trips. "We'd love to come again, maybe next spring."
