Saturday morning trail walk with Bernice
June 18, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 11:30 am$5.00 – $10.00
This walk will be led by QGs’ co-owner Bernice Thieblott. We’ll gather in the Visitor Center for a brief introduction to the project and the local history of soapstone mining, then follow the main trail around the two quarry pools.
Among the plant communities, look for Butterflyweed, Thimbleweed, Pickerel weed, New England aster, St. John’s wort, Spadderdock, Striped wintergreen, Flowering spurge, Wild hydrangea, Spiked lobelia, Spotted beebalm, White waterlily, Quill fameflower, Swamp rose, Purple flowering raspberry, Eastern prickly pear, Foxglove beardtongue, four species of Mountainmint, Swamp rose, Carolina wild petunia, Black snakeroot, Lizard’s tail, Early goldenrod, and many others. With more than 650 native species, surely something will be in bloom!
Consider bringing a lunch to enjoy in our picnic pavilion.
