Arlington's Great Meadows, Lexington

Trip dates: Sunday, September 9, 2018 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM

September is a wonderful season in New England: plants are weighed down with fruits; leaves are ablaze with colors; days are warm and nights are cool. Come celebrate the season with a nature walk in Arlington's Great Meadows. We'll explore several different habitats during our journey: a pond, the pond edge, an upland forest, a field edge and a wet meadow. We will focus on plant ID as well as fun and interesting natural history about the plants we see, and learn why Arlington's Great Meadows is in Lexington. Meeting Place: Meet at the Playground behind and to the right of The Waldorf School, 739 Mass Ave, Lexington, MA. NOTE WELL - PARKING: Please park along Mass Ave in Lexington in the vicinity of the Waldorf School (739 Mass Ave). PLEASE DO NOT PARK IN THE WALDORF SCHOOL PARKING LOT OR THE FOLLEN CHURCH PARKING LOT. BOTH ORGANIZATIONS OFTEN HAVE EVENTS ON SUNDAYS. After you park, walk down the driveway on the right side of Waldorf to the playing fields and turn right. We will meet near the playground and basketball court. $1 for non-members.
