Near Orlean, VA
Join Bert Harris, Clifton Institute Executive Director, and see flowering warm season grasses and other dominant vegetation. At this time of year the meadow is alive with butterflies and other buzzing species, so come prepared with insect repellent, hat and sunscreen. Also wear sturdy shoes, bring drinking water and binoculars if you have them. We will follow health and safety guidelines and practice the recommended 6-foot social distancing and, although we will be outdoors, wearing a face mask or other covering will be helpful for the comfort of others.
This walk has very limited participation, please register early @email@example.com.
VNPS Guidance for Walks/Events during the COVID-19 Pandemic. The health and safety of our members is very important to us. Time out-of-doors is part of a healthy lifestyle both physically and mentally. However, during this COVID-19 pandemic, we must be mindful of the importance of social distancing to minimize the spread of the disease. For example, during regular guided native plant or botanical walks, participants often gather around a specific plant as the leader discusses it. Therefore, we recommend erring on the side of caution and suspending guided group walks until health conditions in your area permit such gatherings. Please follow the recommendations of the CDC and the Virginia Department of Health.
