Mother’s Day Walk on the Macnamara Trail

On May 14, Owen Clarkin led about 20 nature enthusiasts on a three-hour botanical tour of the Macnamara Trail. We learned the difference between Large-Tooth Aspen and Trembling Aspen (both Poplars) and inhaled the enchanting, spicy odour of Balsam Popular. We also learned that the trail area hosts a wide range of tree and shrub species under which grow Trilliums, Toothwort, Trout lily, Mayflower, and other spring ephemeral flowers. An informative and enjoyable tour — with no rain and frequent sunshine! [Summary Janet Mason] [Photos Karen Runtz]
