Eshelman Property


The Pfeiffer Nature Center will hold a walk called “Fields of Gold: Getting to Know Goldenrod” at 10 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 9 at the Eshelman Property, 1420 Yubadam Rd., Portville

The predominate yellow flower in Western New York fields during autumn is goldenrod– not one, but up to fifteen different species of goldenrod in our area. They contribute to the rich summer ecosystem.

The walk will include an introduction to basic botanical terms, how to use a plant identification key, hands-on experience identifying several species of Goldenrods, and a bit of fact, folklore, and fiction about this summertime beauty.

The walk is free for members and children under 13, and $5 for non-members. Minors must be accompanied by an adult.

Register by 4 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 7. Register here or contact the office at 716-933-0187.
