Mountain Laurel Hike

Sunday, June 8, 11am

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 Kent Conservation Advisory Committee on a walk around White Pond this Sunday, June 8, at 11am.

Learn about the extraordinary pollination mechanism and interesting history of the laurel. Enjoy walking three miles, through different habitats and plant communities, around the clear waters of White Pond. Wild flowers, breeding birds, and animal tracks and traces abound.

Wear sturdy shoes, apply tick repellant and bring water and lunch, if you wish. Meet at the White Pond Parking Area.  Call Beth at 228-5635 to register or for more information.
