Marsh Warden Mike Limatola and I are leading our free Celery Farm guided walks again this spring. The last one is this Saturday -- May 2 -- at 8 a.m.
The 90-minute walks, open to nature lovers of all ages and abilities, are designed to acquaint more people with the 107-acre Celery Farm. We'll look for birds, bugs, frogs, turtles and weird plants.
We'll have a spotting scope or two, but bring binoculars if you have them.
Note: We suggest wearing long sleeves, long pants, socks and shoes to reduce the chances of ticks.
The walks begin at the end of Green Way (a right turn off of northbound Franklin Turnpike, just before Crescent Avenue). (Directions are in the left-hand column.)
The walks are sponsored by the Fyke Nature Association, which helps maintain the Celery Farm.
