Wildflower Ramble & Brown Bag Lunch

Thursday, April 22
11 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.

Each year in memory of one of our founding Board members, Helen Hermes, our Executive Director, Ann Taylor, invites you to join her for a leisurely stroll down our stream-side trail to discover some of her favorite spring ephemerals: Trout Lily, Rue Anemone, Dutchman’s Breeches, Trillium, and Spring Beauties will all be here to greet you! Feel free to bring a brown bag lunch and share happy conversations (at a safe distance)
on our balcony as you enjoy the weeping cherry blossoms and views into our early spring pastures.

This program is limited to 8 participants.

10 – 11 a.m.

Join our Program Director and Trout Unlimited member, Tim Laughlin, for an introduction to fly casting. Like most other sports once you learn the basics you can build off of that. Participants will learn to cast in the field then will walk down to the pond and see what impact the line in the water has on their casting sequence. So, come learn a lifelong skill/sport that gets you outdoors! All equipment will be provided.

This program is limited to 6 participants.
