6 people attended the event.

On Saturday, April 18, 2015 a gentle spring rain kept attendance to six area wildflower enthusiasts for the 4th annual woodland walk on the Old Military Trail at Perry Lake. It was a glorious, and very educational, experience thanks to the four experts in the photo below; all agreed that it was much preferable to hot, windy weather, if a bit slippery on upper slopes. The False Rue Anemone filled the cloud-darkened forest floor with tiny white lights, other regulars this time of season included Toothwort, Dutchman’s Breeches, Yellow Violet, Rattlesnake Fern, American Lopseed, Anise Root, Wild Chervil, Canadian Honewort, Moonseed, and Bladdernut shrubs. The four stalwarts continued down the other side of the trail and may want to add to this report. All in all, it was a day filled with good company, lovely ephemeral spring blooms, fresh air, and lots of birdsong!
