Join Conservancy docents Lou Ricord, Ann Mason, and Dave AMos as they wander this southern county natural area in search of spring wildflowers. Within its preserved 110-acres, Chippewa Run has wetlands, streams and ponds, old fields, red pine and spruce/fir stands, hardwoods, and an old apple orchard making this an excellent area for wildflowers. Last year’s list included trillium, violets, spring beauty, Dutchman’s breeches, squirrel-corn, trout lily, jack-in-the-pulpit, gaywings and others. Also, there will be many birds to spot and identify so you might want to bring a set of binoculars. If you plan to attend please call 231 256-9665 or send us an email at [email protected] so we may provide you with the best experience possible. Please note–no dogs on docent-led hikes, which last about 2 hours. Visit our website to learn about all upcoming hikes, workbees, and events.
