FOR ADULTS (18+) AND YOUTH AGES 15+
As summer wanes, the meadows come alive with life! A glorious display of flowers and insects gain sustenance from each other while birds and dragonflies fill the air above. We will look for several species of native goldenrods and discuss the important role this keystone species has in our ecosystem. This edition of Richard’s Ramble will be slower-paced with mostly level walking as we concentrate on the smaller, fascinating community living in the meadows.
There’s more to discover in Tyler’s 650 acres. Join Dr. Richard Brenner for a walk through the various eco-communities at Tyler. From seasonal wonders, living fossils, meadows, watery locations, geological treasures, conservation areas, and unexpected wildlife, Richard will expertly guide you to prime areas for an experience you will remember. Expertise from others will often be on hand for a more in-depth exploration. These rambles are for those who have a love for nature, exploring, and learning. While a description of each ramble is posted in advance, we reserve the right to make last-minute changes, including adjustments for weather and trail conditions. Bring your reusable water bottle and dress for the weather, including sturdy shoes.
Upon arrival, please check in first at the Visitor Center, where you’ll then meet your guide.
