Pogonip Park with Andy Werner Saturday, October 5, 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

This hike is an easy six-mile loop of the beaten track with a beautiful and amazing diversity of native plants. We'll ID trees, shrubs, grasses, and notable exotics. We'll also see the Koi pond, cat temple, kilns, haunted meadow, and old clubhouse.

Meet in Harvey West Park in the parking lot near the clubhouse and pool. Parking is free and should be plentiful. Bring water and lunch. Registration is required as hike is limited to 10 participants. Contact Andy at to register.
