JULY ~ Nature Walk at Ask Brook Reservation
Saturday July 15th
9:30am – 12:30pm
Ash Brook Reservation
1776 Raritan Road, Scotch Plains
Join long-time Trail Steward Marc Grobman and amble across a forested hill of maple, beech, and sassafras, down through swampland thick with skunk cabbage and spicebush, to the dry, sandy meadows of Red Hill’s blueberry, pines, and pin oaks. Come learn about skunk cabbage’s thermogenesis and other odd characteristics, how early inhabitants used various plants, and how the park’s “corduroy” trail bed was built solely with locally-sourced materials.
