Niagara Falls Nature Club May 20 2010

Tuesday, May 25th, 2010

Members of the Niagara Falls Nature Club enjoyed our walk at Marcy’s Woods last Thursday. We had a beautiful night. Thank you for allowing us to reschedule.

27 hikers came including a few who had never seen the Woods before. The highlights of our walk were the profusion of blooms, the many wood thrushes singing, a scarlet tanager and the gorgeous sunset we enjoyed walking along the beach to our cars.

83 members and friends of the local
Bert Miller Naature Club walked DiCienzo’s Marcy Woods.
They divided into four groups with nature wise leaders.
Earl Plato handede out brochures and maps of the Woods and
welcomed the group. Lynda Goodridge organized the large group.
Birds, amphibians and wildflowers ewere in the Woods that day. Trilliums
were still blooming. Alas the famed Wood frogs had moved on.
Much appreciation to the DiCienzo family, owners of Marcy Woods.
Some took the Upper Bird Trail. Others walked the ridge along
Little Hemlock Ridge to the Marcy seat among the four towering
Basswood trees. Many want to return. Earl Plato reporter

10 ladies from Niagara-on=the-Lake met with Earl Plato and daughter Allison at Marcy Woods. Hostess was Jena Scarlett who arranged he walk. The weather was ideal and few mosquitos. Earl on his new scooter named the Rambler was able to comment MORE easily. Some of the ladies including Mrs. Scarlett were very knowledgable. At the cabin we met Dino Sr. and two of his grandsons. hey were to work around the old Macy cabin. Jena lead the ladies to the lake or back down the refurbished steps. It was a perfect day for all.
