Photo Gallery is Growing – but we need your help!

If you have been on a hike or paddle lately and have a few pics you would like to share – please send them to AdkBotanicalSociety@gmail.com.  The Photo Gallery Page is growing with photos of ADK fauna and plant enthusiasts – but we need your help.  Be sure to include:

  • the  name of the plant (both common and scientific name),
  • the date and location of the photo,
  • any other info you would like to add.

Sometimes you don’t have to go very far for a photo  – this patch of Fireweed, Chamerion angustifolium, is growing right along route 73 near one of the parking areas near Upper Cascade.  It was just starting to flower when I drove by on July 7th.  I could barely see the flowers though, as there was hardly one not taken up by a bee!
