Mountain Laurel Hike

Sunday, June 9, 2013, 1PM

Mother Nature decorates our woodlands in celebration of summer with the pink and white blossoms of the mountain laurel. This evergreen shrub is common on Kent’s steep slopes, and now is the time to see the forest dotted with confection-like flowers. Join members of the CAC on a walk in Wonder Lake State Park. Learn about the extraordinary pollination mechanism and interesting history of the laurel while exploring this little-known state park — right here in Kent!

Hikers should wear sturdy shoes and bring water for a moderate three-mile, two-hour excursion. Meet at the parking area on Ludingtonville Road. Heavy rain would postpone the hike with an email alert to Kent CAC hikes subscribers and a posting on our home page by noon that day. Call Beth at 228-5635 for more information.
