Wildflower Walk: Corson’s Brook Woods
Saturday, May 11, 10 am-12pm
Location: Corson’s Brook Woods, Forest Hill Rd.
Join NYC Wildflower Week for a walk through one of Staten Island’s botanical treasures, Corson’s Brook Woods.
It is home to locally rare wildflowers such as wild ginger, blue cohosh, bloodroot, and false hellebore. Trees include a unique red maple and American basswood community and old-growth tulip trees so large that it takes two people to wrap their arms around them. Recommended: sturdy shoes, hat, water, sunscreen, and tick repellant.
Be prepared for muddy conditions and thorns as we bushwhack through the forest's edge; the walk will last approximately 2 hours.
Meet at the intersection of Jasper St. and Forest Hill Rd. near College of Staten Island.
Walk lead by NYC Wildflower Week, now in its 11th year. For full May 11-19, 2019 schedule, visit http://nycwildflowerweek.org
