ECOS Spring Walk
June 4 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm
JUNE 4 Malta Ecological Park: Elizabeth Collins will guide us through this small but diverse area. It includes a variety of habitats, from sandy plain to rich woodland, wetland, and a small steam. A wide variety of plants flourish, including pitch pine, a 12 species of ferns, and such wildflowers as gaywings, pink lady’s slipper, wild azalea, and bishop’s cap.
Directions: Head east from Exit 12 of the Northway on Rt. 67. Continue straight east across Rt. 9 onto Dunning St. (Rt. 67 turns south here.) Dunning becomes Plains Rd., and the park is on your left just 2 miles from the Northway. The nature trail starts from the rear parking lot, which is often closed, but you can walk through the playground to the trail.
