Carnivorous Plants & Dragonflies: Exploring around Black Spruce Pond

August 8, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Take a hike around Black Spruce Pond. Learn about sundew and pitcher plants while observing the dragonflies and damselflies that patrol the pond. Collect samples from the pond edge to get a sense of who’s eating who in the wetland.

Meet at the parking area on 11th Section Rd. Hike will be about 1.5 miles with time to observe the wildlife. Adults and children (must be accompanied by an adult).

Deb Field, a self-proclaimed “tree-hugging dirt-worshipper”, has been a marine & environmental science educator for 25 years. She is currently part of Goodwin Conservation Center’s Master Naturalist Program. As an avid day-hiker, birder, and gardener, her main passion is teaching people of all ages the importance of developing an understanding of nature as it surrounds us.

Programs are free unless otherwise noted. Donations are encouraged.
Pre-registration is not required unless otherwise noted.
