Spring Creek Nature Hike

I had a record number of 9 persons on my Guided Nature Hike up Spring Creek today. On Sunday mornings for the month of August I am leading hikes here in Collier State Park up Spring Creek with an emphasis on wild flowers. Of course I can’t help pointing out the occasional bird or nesting site, and squirrels and chipmunks figure in for a big part of the conversation too, but for the most part I try to concentrate on talking about the various plants, weeds, shrubs, berries and trees found here in the park. The lower photo shows our two 4 years-olds taking a close up inspection of a White Bog Orchard.
