Free, Docent-led Nature Walk: Farewell to Spring

June 15, 2013
10 am – 1 pm

Join a nature walk at Edgewood Park to see Clarkia, June Centaury, Mariposa Lilies and other wildflowers that proclaim farewell to Spring. Observe how spring wildflowers have transformed into fascinating seedheads and ripening fruits, like  glowing gooseberries, fascinating capsules of Fairy Lanterns, and the wild mops of Virgins’ Bower.  Learn how our native plants are preparing to survive the long, dry season to come.

Friends of Edgewood’s free walks cover about 3 miles, at a moderate pace, with frequent stops. Families, seniors and interested children are welcome.

  • When: The walks take place on the third Saturday of each month. Walks begin at 10:00 AM and end around 1:00 PM.
  • 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: Restrooms and water are available only at the Education Center and in the Old Stage Day Camp.
  • Reservations: No reservations are needed unless you have a group of 10 or more. For group reservations, please email
