Today's Ramble was led by Linda Chafin.
Here's the link to Don's Facebook album for today's Ramble. (All the photos in this post are compliments of Don.)
Today's post was written by Don Hunter and Dale Hoyt.
Seventeen Ramblers met today.
Gary Crider will present a program on control/eradication of invasive plants next Thursday, May 4, at the Oconee Rivers Audubon Society meeting.
Today's reading was read by Linda Chafin, an excerpt from an essay titled The Death of a Tree from the book Dune Boy: The Early Years of a Naturalist, by Edwin Way Teale. You can find the text in the email with the link to today's post. Teale was a popular mid-twentieth century nature writer. His most well known books were devoted to the North American seasons: North with the Spring, Journey into Summer, Autumn across America and Wandering through Winter. These all became Book-of-the-Month club selections and the winter book won the Pulitzer Prize in 1966.
Today's route: We went down the cement walkway to the Dunson Native Flora Garden and wandered our way through the DNFG until it was time to return.
