A Winter Walk At Knight’s Pond & Blueberry Hill
Join Us Saturday, February 20th at 10:00 a.m. for a winter walk at Knight's Pond with local naturalist Karen Herold.
One can travel around the pond and forest noticing little but one’s own thoughts. That’s perfectly fine; just being outside is a good use of anyone’s time. Getting a general impression of shapes, patterns, colors, and atmosphere is wonderful as well. However, some sights make you want to find out more. Who made these tracks? You can figure out which species you are seeing in winter. You just have to look a little differently than at other times of year. In some ways, a snow-covered, leafless landscape lets you identify more than when summer leaves obscure details. Read through this: A GUIDE TO A WINTER WALK AT KNIGHT'S POND AND BLUEBERRY HILL to get an idea of the animals and plants you’d find on a winter walk. A map at the end shows where the numbered items were found in winter, 2014-15. You could print out the list at the back and bring it along on your walk to see if you find these features yourself.

- A Second CCLT Walk will be at Rines Forest on Friday, March 4 at 10:00 a.m.
