SATURDAY, MAY 16, 2015  10 AM - Flint, NY

We have been invited to enjoy a photo walk along the Ontario Pathways in Flint, NY in preparation for the Ontario Pathways Photo Exhibit.

Main Street Arts in Clifton Springs will be hosting an Ontario Pathways Photo Exhibition in July.  They have an open call for work until May 25th.  Photos need to be taken of or from the Ontario Pathways Trail and can be submitted using this link:

Please meet on Saturday, May 16th at the BOCES parking lot in Flint (5&20 / 20 ).  We start at 10:00 AM rain or shine.  The walk will last from 10 to 12:00.  It is free, no prior sign up required.  Laura will be there with our wildflower guides for those who prefer not to worry about cameras.

Posted 5/16/15:  Although the forecast was for rain, nine people gathered for a pleasant (rain free) walk along the Ontario Pathways trail just south of the new foot bridge across State Routes 5 & 20.  We saw plenty of Jack-in-the-Pulpits and May Apples in bloom and photos were taken in preparation for the Ontario Pathways Photo Exhibit at Main Street Arts in Clifton Springs.

White Baneberry
 I guessed that this last bloom of white flowers was in the aster family but have correctly identified it as white baneberry (to turn into berries that will look like dolls' eyes)
