ECOS’s Fall Walk at Woods Hollow

ECOS’ Tuesday Walk at Woods Hollow
September 17—Jackie Donnelly will lead a walk at Woods Hollow Nature Preserve on September 17. This preserve near Ballston Spa offers a variety of habitats, from sand plain to forested pond to upland pine woods. We should expect to see plants from each of those habitats, including horse nettle, sand jointweed, blue curls, and maybe (if we look closely enough) yellow bartonia. I hope we find lots of interesting fungi as well.
To get a preview of what this preserve is like, check out Jackie’s blog post from a visit during September of 2018: https://saratogawoodswaters.blogspot.com/2018/09/sandplain-and-creekbank-fall-flowers.html.
To reach the parking area for Woods Hollow, approach Northline Road. on Route 50. Northline Road lies south of the village of Ballston Spa. Turn west at the light onto Northline Road. Watch carefully for the entrance to a parking area as you climb the hill and before you reach the next intersection at Rowland Street. Meet at 9:30 AM
