About the Event
Just before the full flush of fall leave color arrives, nature provides one last gasp of beautiful Wildflowers to enjoy before the onset of dormancy and Winter. We will see numerous Asters, Ironweeds, Gentians, and Goldenrods as we walk at a slow and gentle pace, learning of the plants and their stories.
Save the date: In the event of severe weather, the backup date is Thursday October 6th.
Check in at CLE office at 9:00am Limit: 20
