Tues, May 19, Hike - Almon Park

​Thanks to all of you woods wanderers for taking time to get together this morning. Here's a summary of what we saw for wildflowers and bushes, some budded out, some not: wood anemone (Anemone), hepatica (Hepatica), white violet (Viola), wild sarsaparilla (Aralia), false lily of the valley (Mianthemum), bellwort (Uvularia), solomon's seal (Polygonatum), starflower (Trientalis), wintergreen (Gaultberia), partridge berry (Mitchella), fly honeysuckle (Lonicera), leatherleaf (Chamaedaphne), pitcher plant (Sarracenia), bog laurel (Kalmia), hazel (Corylus), and maybe others. The birds we heard were chickadees, oven bird, flute playing hermit thrush, piccolo playing winter wren, black throated green warbler, black and white warbler, parula warbler and maybe others. Such fun to be out on a pleasant morning and hey, the blackflies weren't too bad. Let's do it again sometime. If anyone sees anything great for wildflowers or birds, please pass it on. 

Sat, March 21, 11:00 am Snowshoe – Heal Creek Trails at Northwoods Golf Course. A group met to snowshoe the splendid sparkling trails at Heal Creek. We passed an area heavily impacted by beavers but saw no animal life on Heal Creek itself.
