Hogback Mountain Conservation Area
In past years, medicinal plant expert Allison Turner has led wildflower walks on Hogback to identify spring flowers and late summer flowers. This year she will take us on a tour of the glorious mid-summer flowers. She has a deep knowledge of how these plants were used by early settlers and how they can still be used today, for things medicinal as well as practical. This is an easy ramble, with lots of stopping to enjoy the blossoms. We’ll stick mainly to the trails, but may wander off-trail here and there, so long pants might be a good idea. Meet in the field behind the white distillery building on the south side of Route 9 just west of the gift shop.
