UPDATE: A New Wildflower Information Station at Shenantaha Creek Park

During this afternoon’s casual rainfall, I placed the third Wildflower Information Station along the nature trail at Shenantaha Creek Park.  For those of you who frequent that park and walk along the nature trail, you’ll notice this sign (for the next couple of weeks) off the left side of the trail within a couple hundred feet after passing the old mill site on the banks of Ballston Creek.  (The first two information stations have been removed for the season.)

Wildflower Info Station – Barren Strawberry – Shenantaha Creek Park

If you have a smartphone, use your QuickRead bar code scanner to download info about the wildflower mentioned at this information station.

As the seasons progresses, one more sign will be placed elsewhere along the trail to continue to educate visitors about other wildflowers that can be observed at this park.

This is a collaborative project with the Town of Malta Department of Parks, Recreation, and Human Services.  If you observe these signs during a visit, please let me know what you think about your experience.

During my visit, I saw these blooms elsewhere along the trail –

White Baneberry

Wake Robin

Canadian Wild Ginger

Long-spurred Violet

Early Meadow Rue

Small-flowered Crowfoot

Downy Yellow Violet

Happy trails!
