Welcome to Woodchuck Lodge
“These hills fathered and mothered me. I am blood of their blood and bone of their bone, and why should I not go back to them in my last years?”
John Burroughs, Literary Naturalist, 1910
Next Wild Saturday program: "The Flowering Meadows of Summer," a wildflower ramble with Rich Parisio. 1 P.M. July 6. Meet on the Porch. Rich, a writer, environmental educator and Burroughs scholar, will lead participants to John Burroughs Memorial Field just up the road in search of native and imported wildflowers. Readings from Burroughs' essays will be featured.
Participants will learn about simple ways to identify wildflowers, and the edible, medicinal, and other uses of these plants among native people and early European settlers in the region.
Come early or stay afterwards to tour the Lodge. Program and tour are free. Donations encouraged!
