Spring Flower Walks – CANCELED
May 19 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am
MAY 19 Pine Hollow: Pine Hollow is an arboretum so there are many different species of trees, including a spectacular huge Dawn Redwood. As well as a large collection of spring-blooming wild flowers and bulbs, we can expect to see magnolias, rhododendron, azalea, and silver bells. Sigrin Newell will lead us.
Directions: From the Capital Region you can take Rt. 90 until it turns right at exit 4 into Rt. 85. Continue on Rt. 85 through roundabouts about 5 miles until you reach the Price Chopper parking area, at the intersection with New Scotland Rd. Meet in front of Bellini’s Italian Restaurant; due to very limited parking at the arboretum we will carpool from there. For internet directions use the address 34 Pine Hollow Road Slingerlands, NY 12159
Meeting time at the trailhead is 9:30 a.m.; walks usually last around 2 hours. You may want to bring shoes and trekking poles or sticks for hills, mud, water, or ice along the trails. Directions are from the closest major road. Anyone who wishes to carpool may contact Steve Jones, firstname.lastname@example.org, 518-381-1826.
