9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Orange Market - Salem


Some of the plants that might be in bloom are: hepatica, spicebush, bloodroot, toothwort, Dutchman’s breeches, large-flowered bellwort, perfoliate bellwort, dwarf larkspur, and large-flowered trillium. Most of the trail is paved. Some of it is slightly hilly, but short. Total walking will be about 1.5 miles. This is a new field trip for our chapter. The plant cover rivals that of Greenhill Park. If people are interested, we can also go to the Radford University campus to see the national champion White Basswood.

John Kell has degrees in Botany from Marshall University (B.S.) and Stephen F. Austin State University (M.S.). He has taught at RU since 1992, mostly teaching introductory biology and human anatomy and physiology.

Leader: Terry Lauver 540-685-4173 or tll1945@cox.net. Bring rain gear, lunch and sturdy shoes.

Meet: 9 a.m. at the Orange Market on Thompson Memorial Blvd. in Salem off I81 Exit 141 at intersection of Va. 419 and Va. 311. Terry Lauver will lead the caravan to Radford.
