BLUEBELLS FOR MOTHER'S DAY at ROGERS' WOODS



SATURDAY, MAY 11, 2013

Time: 10:00 am OR meet at 9:35 am if carpooling from the parking lot behind the Ontario County Courthouse, accessed from Sly Street off Ontario Street, east off Main Street in Canandaigua.

Where: Go west from Canandaigua on Rt. 5 & 20 about 5 miles and turn left (south) on Wheeler Rd (intersection is about half mile before you get to Toomey's Corners). Proceed .9 of a mile to a brown house on the right-hand side of the road in a wooded area. Park on side of road just past this house.

From past experience, we have found that the bluebells (Mertensia virginica) bloom for Mother's Day, hence the title for our walk. This wooded area is on a flood plain of Mud Creek. There are two circular paths, one flat and one that requires crossing a small creek so bring a walking stick and wear boots.

Bethan will be there to show how to enjoy the bluebell nectar.

If you’re interested in what we saw on our last visit to Rogers’ Woods in 2009:
