PLANTS OF GRIMES GLEN, Naples

SATURDAY, JUNE 17, 2017   10 AM

Plants of Grimes Glen with Sandra Bierbrauer

Sandra is a FROGG (Friend of Grimes Glen) and will lead us through the lower portion of Grimes Glen.  Grimes Glen is a narrow, deep gorge cut through limey shale.  The first third of the gorge has an easily-walked path.  However, to see the middle and upper waterfalls, one must walk through the creek bed.

Directions: Head south from Canandaigua on Route 21 south to Naples.  Continue through the village of Naples and take a right onto Vine Street.  We will meet at 10 AM in the parking area at the end of Vine Street (public bathrooms available).

REPORT FROM OUR WALK:
Eight members met on a warm and sunny morning at the Grimes Glen parking area and were able to enjoy a comfortable walk along the trail towards the waterfalls.  Four members proceeded on to the first falls (getting their feet wet occasionally) and three members proceeded on through the water to the second falls.  Species list follows the photos.
