Year-Round Interpretive Walks

Edgewood’s springtime wildflower displays can be dazzling, but Edgewood has something to offer visitors any time of the year.

To display the treasures of Edgewood all year long, Friends of Edgewood docents guide nature hikes on the third Saturday morning of each month throughout the year. Walks will take you through a number of different plant communities, with frequent stops to take a closer look at what is happening there. It may be interesting insects, plants that would otherwise be overlooked, listening for frogs, identifying butterflies, or examining spider turrets. The closer you look, the more you will see. Regardless of the season, you are likely to learn all kinds of fascinating things that you didn’t know before.

Our free walks cover about 3 miles, at a moderate pace. Families, seniors and interested children are welcome. Heavy rain cancels walks.

See our calendar or events page for specific dates and topics.

When

10:00 am on the third Saturday of every month.

Where to meet

Walks start from the Bill and Jean Lane Education Center.

What to bring

Bring water, a hat, sturdy shoes, sunscreen, and a snack if you wish. We don’t stop for lunch, but picnic tables are usually available after the walks in the picnic area.

Reservations

No reservations are needed unless you have a group of 10 or more. For group reservations, please email docent-coordinator@friendsofedgewood.org.
