The Charlie Horwood Memorial Lady Slipper Walk

June 24 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

 

NatureNL has an annual short fieldtrip on Mount Scio to view the pink lady slipper orchids.  Initially this walk was led by Charlie Horwood, a long-time natural historian and a founding member of NatureNL.  Since his death, we have continued the traditional outing as the Charlie Horwood Memorial Lady Slipper Walk. While the re-growth and development of trails in the area have markedly reduced their numbers, we typically see several hundred blooms in the 75 minute easy walk. Due to the late spring we have scheduled the outing a week later than it traditionally would have been.

 

We will meet at the MUN Vivarium Parking Lot, off Mount Scio Road, opposite and a bit east of the MUN Botanical Garden entrance. Park in the paved lot off that roadway, on the right very near Mount Scio Road.
