Second Sunday Nature Walk
June 14 @ 9:00 am
June 14: Fern Foray Meet at the Sacajawea Shelterhouse, at the far end of the lower loop road
Trail 7 (lower and upper)
Ouabache Trails boasts a number of different fern species in a variety of interesting forms and sizes. Explore from wetland to upland forest, seeing how many kinds we can find. Learn how ferns grow and reproduce. One kind of fern is evergreen, but the others show up in spring or summer. A checklist will be provided of fern species that have been seen at Ouabache Trails Park.
Lower Trail 7 involves a stream and wetland. Upper Trail 7 involves some steep slopes.
(If the lower area is flooded and impassable, we will use Trail 6, 5, and part of 4, starting at Sacajawea)
