Manuel Lizarralde, Associate Professor of Botany and Environmental Studies at Conn College in New London, will narrate a two-hour ramble in which we learn about the roles that various herbs, roots, flowering plants, grasses, and trees played in the lives of indigenous Americans before European settlement. This walk is a repeat of his October walk with a focus on summer flora.
Approximately three miles over mostly gentle terrain with some brief climbs. Wear hiking shoes, take insect precautions, and bring water. Trails may be wet. Children age seven and older are welcome but please, no dogs.
