The Niagara Frontier Botanical Society will hold a field trip to Wendt Beach Park on the Lake Erie shore in the Town of Evans.

Participants will meet at 9 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 13 at Home Depot, 4405 Milestrip Rd., Hamburg, just east of I-90 Blasdell exit.

Bring lunch for a picnic.

Please call 835-6042 if you are going. Occasionally there are last minute changes, so it is important that the trip leader knows you are planning to attend. Guests are always welcome.  

A sizable population of Solidago arguta or cut-leaved goldenrod grows there on the dunes. The lake’s sand beaches contain a whole flora not present elsewhere, and participants may find at least some of the following: Cycloloma, Corispermum, Switchgrass, Sandbur, Beach Pea, Trailing Wild Bean, Field Sagewort, Seaside Spurge and Clammyweed.
