The Sounds and Feel of Spring
Bohemia Ecological Preserve
Join Docent Joani for a visit to the Bohemia Ecological Preserve to celebrate spring! We’ll do an exploration of the three B’S (Birds, Butterflies, & other Bugs), what’s in bloom, who’s pollinating… and who is saying what and to whom!
We’ll be moving at a leisurely pace around various parts of the Preserve to gaze in wonder at the creatures and plant life in this beautiful place. We will be hiking 2-4 miles up and down hills while taking our time to listen to, talk about, and observe bird, pollinator and plant life.
Hike Details: We will be hiking 2-4 miles over moderate to steep terrain while taking our time to
listen to, talk about, and observe pollinator and plant life. Walking poles/stick are recommended for the hike back. What
