Annual Fringed Gentian Hike
Saturday, September 20, 2014, 2:30 PM
Led by Jim Tomko
See what dazzled and inspired authors and poets like William Cullen Bryant, Emily Dickinson and Henry David Thoreau to write about the beauty of this native wildflower. These rare flowers are losing ground due to housing developments, loss of wet soils, excess mowing and the use of herbicides. The amazing and delicate blue blossoms are something to behold. In addition to the Fringed Gentian we also see Closed or Bottle Gentian in bloom, some of the last flowers to bloom for the season. Meet at Aurora Audubon Sanctuary in the Audubon Parking lot on the north side of Pioneer Trail a few hundred yards east of Page Road in Aurora.
