The Niagara Frontier Botanical Society will host a field trip to Point Gratiot Park on Lake Erie in Dunkirk on Saturday, June 8.

The diverse sandy beach flora here includes Potentilla paradoxa (S1), and the cliffs host Houstonia, Shepherdia, American Bittersweet, Hop Tree and much else. Unfortunately, the group will have to wade through knee deep water to access the cliffs, so participants should bring appropriate footwear and their own lunch.

The group will meet at 9 a.m. Home Depot on Mile Strip Road just east of I-90 (Exit 56). Those planning to attend should call Joanne Schlegel at 835-6042. Erik Danielsen and other members of the Chautauqua Watershed Conservancy will act as guides.
