We'll take a slow 2 hour walk through Houston Meadow at the end of its growing season on mostly level trails. Our focus will be on autumn wildflowers, and the fruits of grasses, shrubs and trees as the plants transition toward winter dormancy. We'll keep eyes open for the birds, insects and other creatures that also live in the meadow. This walk is suitable for adults and older children accompanied by a responsible adult. Bring wildflower and other guide books, if you wish, as well as a hand lens and water.
