Saturday June 26: Plant inventory

19 Jun

Please join us for our next workday at Rainbow Beach Dunes, where we will attempt to inventory the plant species that are growing at the nature area.  Come learn about the plants here or teach others.  All you need is curiosity and a keen sense of observation; but if you have botany skills and plant field guides, please bring those too!
Our plant hunt will last from 10am – 12noon.

You have a special incentive to come because the milkweed and prickly pear are flowering, and woodcocks are having babies!

Rainbow Beach is located at 3111 E. 77th St.  By foot, walk east from South Shore Dr. on 77th St.  By car, enter from 79th St., go past the water treatment plant, and park in the first parking lot.  The nature area is at the southern end of the beach. Meet at the Rainbow Beach Fieldhouse. Tools and equipment will be provided, but please bring water and dress appropriately for the weather. Contact Alison Anastasio at for questions and to RSVP.

*Mark your calendar! Other upcoming workdays at Rainbow Beach:
Saturday July 31 – Weed/Invasive plant management
Saturday September 25 – Bird Walk
