“Weeds and Wildflowers in Winter” Feb. 5th

Posted on January 17, 2017

This walk in Hobler Park is in a large open field, rich in grasses, flowers and wildlife.   Come learn to identify plants in the “off-season” and look for evidence of the wildlife that lives there.  Although it is winter, there will still be lots of signs of life. Most of the area is flat, but it will likely be wet underfoot, so dress accordingly.

Our walk leader, Karen Linder, is an open space advocate with strong scientific leanings.  In real life, she works in clinical science and medical affairs, but in her copious spare time (ha) she is president of Friends of Princeton Nursery Lands and a trustee with Kingston Greenways Association. She has led many nature walks near her home in Kingston, NJ. She credits her curiosity, her mom, and lots of time in the woods with her love of nature.  This walk is part of a lifelong goal to help instill that passion in others.  A free 1st Sunday in the Park event sponsored by Montgomery Friends of Open Space (MontgomeryFriends.org).

Directions:  Meet us at Sunday, February 5, 2 p.m. at Hobler Park, Great Road, Skillman, just south of Route 518.
