Tuesday Morning Group - Nan Weston Preserve

Tuesday, May 15, 2018 7:44 PM | Steve Jerant (Administrator)

The Tuesday Morning Group crossed the county line to visit the wildflower jewel of Washtenaw County this morning.:  The nature Conservancy's Nan Weston Preserve.     The weather cooperated and was cool and kept the mosquitos down.  Joann Balbach lead us on a walk through Trilliums in full bloom.  We also saw Spring Beauty, May Apple, Maiden Hair fern, Violets of various colors, Ragwort, Wild Strawberry, Gooseberry, Solomon Seal & False Solomon Seal, Dwarf Ginseng, Anemone, Phlox, Wild Geranium, and Ginger.

She shared her knowledge of the various species as well as some folklore and ancient remedies used for some of the plants.

On the bird front, the thrushes were quite active and Lynn Eckerle spotted a Barred Owl.
