leave a comment »

If you want to learn about plants along the dunes at Inverhuron and check out a variety of habitats at MacGregor Point, make sure you sign up for UNIQUE HABITATS ALONG THE LAKE HURON SHORELINE taking place on Saturday, May 24 beginning at 8:30 AM.

Judith Jones, M.S., of Winter Spider Eco-Consulting, will lead you through an interesting day of discovery. You’ll see some rare and unusual species as well as some of the prettiest common ones.  Find out how thistles parachute, what makes a weed a weed, and the difference between sedges, grasses, and rushes.
