Anderson Lake Ethnobotanical Hike

Join our Natural History Society for a spring hike led by Jeanmarie Morelli on Wednesday, May 17, to Anderson Lake State Park.

It’s an easy three-mile ramble around the lake.

We plan to check out the flora and ethnobotanical uses of plants, by examining cedar trees for signs of bark harvest (from before the land was a park), noting the formation of tiny fruits on edible berry shrubs, discussing how we use local native plants, tasting licorice fern, and much more.

Participation is not limited, and carpools will be arranged. Wear light hiking boots and dress in layers for changing weather. Bring field guides, binoculars, and plenty of food and water.

For other details, carpool information, and to RSVP, please contact Eileen at
