Spring Wildflower Walk
The Heron Rookery at the Indiana Dunes National Park offers an amazing abundance of spring wildflowers. All can be seen within a relatively short distance along a flower-packed trail. Most of these flowers are found in the Beverly Shores area but nowhere in such density and diversity in a single location. Take a walk at the Heron Rookery with Terry Bonace of the Beverly Shores Environmental Restoration Group on Monday, May 4, at 9:00 a.m to 11:00 a.m., when we should expect (depending on the weather) peak blooming time for these flowers. This walk is free of charge but sign-up is required and the group is limited to 12 people. The Heron Rookery is located about 6 miles almost directly south of Beverly Shores. We will likely carpool from Beverly Shores to the Heron Rookery at 8:45 a.m.
Summer Plant Walks
Ever wonder about common plants of Beverly Shores or even some of the less common beauties you might have overlooked? If so, the Beverly Shores Environmental Restoration Group is offering a basic plant identification walk in Beverly Shores over two Monday mornings this summer. Those Mondays are June 29 and August 15. Each walk will begin at 9:00 a.m, last about 2 hours, and go from the Kemil Beach parking lot to Four Corners (Broadway and Beverly, about 2 miles). We will arrange parking so that those who parked at Kemil Beach and not wishing to walk back from 4 Corners can get a shuttle there. The cost of the class is $20. The class size will be limited to 12 people. If you are interested in signing up, please contact the instructor, Terry Bonace, at firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope to see you there. Beverly Shores has a wonderful richness of plants to discover
