Rare Native Plants & Orchids Talk & Walk
Sustainable Cherry Hill Garden Task Force will host Rare Native Plants & Orchids Talk & Walk, a guided tour of Lake Worth Park beginning at the gazebo at 1 p.m., June 7, in Lindenwold.
Nature photographer and committed Environmental Preservationist Michael Hogan will lead the walk through the 49-acre park on the Trout Run tributary of the Big Timber Creek. Walkers will discover many native orchids including Pink Lady’s Slipper, Ragged Fringed, Green Woodlands and Nodding Lady’s Tress orchids.
Once a popular swimming lake, Lake Worth Park has been preserved for open space by Camden County. The park has a rich diversity and mix of Pinelands and Delaware River watershed plants. It also contains one of the few stands of Atlantic white cedar found on the Big Timber Creek watershed.
Location: The intersection of Rosamond Ave. and White Horse Pike. For more information or to register, visit Tinyurl.com/rareorchid.
