SPRING WILDFLOWERS AT JOPPENBERGH MOUNTAIN
April 16 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Join Lynn Bowdery on a walk up to the lookout point on Joppenbergh Mountain and search for spring ephemerals, the early spring wildflowers that grow and bloom before the trees leaf out and shade them into dormancy. Red Trillium, Wild Columbine, Rue Anemone, Violets and more have been found along this route. Of course, we can examine and discuss anything else that catches our attention. The path to the lookout rises a modest 200 feet in elevation but is steep and rocky in a few places- wear good shoes and bring hiking poles if you use them. We will meet in the parking area by Willow Kiln Park, behind Rosendale Theater, accessed by narrow Hardenburgh Lane, at 10AM and plan to end at 12 noon. Please tell Lynn (845-255-6690, firstname.lastname@example.org) if you will be coming. Rain cancels.
The field trips of JBNHS are oriented to nature study. They are free and open to the public. We do, however, sometimes visit sites that charge admission fees, which are the responsibility of the participants. Children are very welcome on field trips, but pets are not. Although there is a brief courtesy waiting period for latecomers, the meeting times are important: please arrive in time to sign up with the leader.
