Third Saturday Nature Walk at Edgewood Park and Natural Preserve

Saturday, January 20 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

| Free

What about all that Moss?

Description:
What sort of plant is moss? We often see it, but rarely look at it carefully. How is like or unlike other plants, or lichens? What role does it play in the forest and grasslands? Who uses moss? We will take a walk with stops to look closely at certain sites where mosses grow and appreciate why they are there. Will you learn to identify mosses? Maybe some. Will you learn how interesting moss can be? Definitely! Bring a hand lens if you have one!

Come join Edgewood Park docent Rebecca Reynolds for a fun Nature Walk as we learn about all that Moss.

Pace & Terrain: This will be a very leisurely hike of about 1 mile in 3 hrs. with frequent stops for looking, observing and talking about all that we see.

Bring: Water, a hat, sturdy shoes, sunscreen, and a snack.

Restrooms and water: Available only near the main entrance.

Dogs: Dogs are not allowed in Edgewood Park.
