2011 Fall Hike

Twenty hikers joined Zach Wilson of the Discovery Center on October 22 for a fall hike around the Hemlock Lake Loop. The leaves were mostly down and the tamarack needles have turned golden. The bog surface of sphagnum moss, pitcher plants, and bog rosemary was a soft carpet of red and green. Zach described many of the seasonal changes now underway for the animals of the forest as winter approaches.

The Friends of the Van Vliet Hemlocks were pleased to sponsor this hike.
