Song of the Night Woods Walk with Glenn Welch
Ridge Road near 58 Court
A group of 15 hikers hiked into the Greenbelt Forest Preserve on Friday evening.Their intent… to listen to the
woods. As they walked along they heard the calls of a wood thrush, and eastern wood peewee, a Carolina wren, robins, cardinals, and a titmouse.The calls were beautiful and seemed to be telling the
hikers how glad they were that the woods had been saved for them.The group was led by Glenn Welch , a nature enthusiast who helped to identify the birds and also identified some of the newly leafed
out ground cover plants including may apples, Christmas fern, wood fern, Virginia creeper and clubmoss.
