Take a Hike on New Year’s Day

Good morning –
I hope your holidays are pleasant! I got this note from Friends of Edgewood, about a New Year’s Day hike, and I thought I’d pass it along to you.

New Year’s Walk

Plants & People: Stories  – Jan 1, 2013, Tuesday, 10 am – 1 pm
Carry out your resolutions to exercise and learn more about the natural world!  Join a New Year’s hike with Friends of Edgewood docent Harry Cornbleet, who will share stories that illuminate the relationship between people and plants.  Which shrub is known as “Cowboy Cologne”? How did chemists discover the allergen in Poison Oak?  Do people really make ink from oak galls?   Adults, seniors and families with interested children are welcome. Heavy rain cancels.

Where to meet

Walks start from the Education Center at Edgewood Park. A Google map is available here.

What to bring

Bring water, a hat, sturdy shoes, sunscreen, and a snack if you wish. We don’t stop for lunch, but picnic tables are usually available after the walks in the Old Stage Day Camp area.


Restrooms and water are available only at the Education Center and in the Old Stage Day Camp.


No reservations are needed unless you have a group of 10 or more. For group reservations, please email
