Fall Wildflowers and Woody Plants Walk in Houston Meadow with Donna Wilhelm

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.

Registration is recommended for all hikes so that you can be informed of weather or other emergency cancellations. Unless otherwise specified Trail Ambassador hikes may use rocky, rugged trails that may be wet and slippery. Please wear sturdy shoes or boots with socks. Long pants are recommended for protection against occasional poison ivy and possible ticks. Bring water and a snack if desired. Unless otherwise noted, children over 7 are welcome if accompanied by a responsible adult. Walks are cancelled in heavy rain or icy conditions. For more information or to register contact Sarah Marley at [masked].

    Hi Donna,

    Is it possible to move this meetup to the next day (Sunday) or the previous day (Friday)? September 14 is Yom Kippur (Jewish High Holy Day). Just a suggestion.

      Hi Deborah, The Trail Ambassadors manage their own schedules and sometimes these hikes may conflict with other holidays or events. Donna will do this hike again possibly in the Winter or Spring.
