Time of Event: 2-4pm
Event Site: Great Meadows National Wildlife Refuge
Event Description: As the landscape turns toward autumn, September brings a wave of new wildflowers and colorful fruits whose distinctive forms and saturated hues herald the end of a long summer. October marks a colorful transition in the marsh, surrounding forests, and along the river's edge that moves toward the earthen tones and silky-seeded appointments of November. Distinctive blossoms, last fruits, varied seed pods, the gossamer of autumn spiders, flocking birds, and mushroom surprises all will greet us in our ramblings through the refuge. For our final autumn walk, we'll enjoy the splendor of a November sunset and the silhouetted vestiges of summer life in the marsh. No pre-registration required. A $5/person voluntary donation will be gratefully accepted. Led by Cherrie Corey, local naturalist and photographer; Co-sponsored by Musketaquid Arts and Environment Program and FARNWR.
