Secondary Succession Due to Fire: Plants & Wildflowers
We’ll be exploring the succession of plants and wildflowers due to wildfire. The October 2017 Nunn’s Fire burned 63% of Trione-Annadel State Park. Some areas are high severity burn, other areas are low-intensity ground-clearing burn. Join Volunteer Interpretive Naturalist John Lynch hiking trails into the burn areas. Discover what is growing and blooming now as a result of wildfire, what’s new and different. John will also cover how Native Americans used fire as a land management tool. BRING LUNCH: lunch stop includes restroom. Option to hike faster pace on the way back down Two Quarry. Hike begins and ends at Richardson Trailhead Parking Lot, end of Channel Drive. HEAVY RAIN CANCELS. Restrooms and water available in parking lot.
