Windsor Meadows State Park

Event Description: 

Ramble with us along the river and see an area full of invasive plants. You can get an idea of how invasive plants can really take over an area. We'll see how many we can identify. As a bonus, there are likely to be warblers and other migrating birds in the area.

This is a gentle walk along paved or cleared paths. There may be an opportunity to do a bit of "bushwhacking" depending on participant interest.

Brad Robinson is an American Red Cross First Aid/CPR trained volunteer CFPA Ramble Guide.
