Come join us on May 1 at 6 PM for a fun and free activity: walking to the greenstone quarry, and learning about plants and birds along the way. Here's more from Board member Sally Thomas:
"A pleasant way to spend the evening of May Day! There will be an informal wildflower/birding walk in the evening of. Meet at 6 pm at the old barn in Darden Towe Park where Lewis and Clark Exploratory Center's keelboat is perched. The walk will go to an old quarry at the edge of the Rivanna River, about a one-mile distance. All along the way, Robert Jennings of the Chesapeake Bay Foundation will answer questions and describe interesting plants and birds.
An easy walk but wear long pants, proper footwear and bring insect repellent if you wish.
Sponsored by the Lewis and Clark Exploratory Center and the Chesapeake Bay Foundation."
