Tour the gardens at the private home of Sandy and Pat in Waterloo. You will walk among perennial beds, rock garden, and extensive herb garden.
At around 3:30 pm we’ll gather under the walnut trees for our planning meeting and hopefully we’ll be able to spot some Great Blue Herons flying overhead.
After the meeting we’ll fire up the grill for a weenie roast and grilled veggies.
Afterwards, around 5:30 or 6 pm, we’ll head off (car-pooling is an option) to the Esker Brook trail at the Montezuma National Wildlife Refuge for a 1.6 mile hike to the pool and back along the Esker ridge. Hopefully we’ll spot some birds and other wildlife.
Bring a side dish to pass and optionally something else to grill if you don’t want hot dogs.
Also Bring: Your trip ideas, calendar, and appetite. Optional: camera, Frisbee, a friend!
For the hike: a water bottle and hat. Optionally a hiking stick, binoculars, and trail shoes.
Recommended: an insect repellent that works on ticks
Address and Directions: will be sent when you RSVP
