Springtime is come, the winter departed

An enthusiastic crowd of 35 people joined us for Saturday's nature mosey at Overton Park. Beautiful weather, beautiful wildflowers, who could ask for anything more?

Thanks to Amie, Melissa and Corey for adding those gorgeous photos to our Flickr pool!

Our next guided hikes will be on Sunday, April 26. We will do our usual 10:00am hike, then our favorite botanist, Tom Heineke, will lead a second hike starting at 2:00pm. Both hikes meet at the east end of Old Forest Lane, next to the Rainbow Lake parking lot.

If you can't join us this month, please take yourself for a walk in the woods. Don't miss this amazing season in the Old Forest!
