Aug. 27, 2012. The Wetland Plant Walk at Boone’s Clawson-Burnley Park is on Aug. 28 at 6 p.m. Clawson-Burnley Park is located at Hunting Hills Lane, Boone. This is a free event.
It’s been 4 years since the 1.4-acre stormwater wetland was constructed along the greenway trail in Boone. Within these 4 years, volunteers and town employees have planted hundreds of native plants that are now thriving and providing water treatment and habitat for wildlife.
The wetland tour will be led by Wendy Patoprsty of the Watauga County Cooperative Extension and will last one to two hours. All ages are welcome to join as Wendy will provide some hands-on activities to view the flora and fauna of the wetland.
This is a rain or shine event. Bring either an umbrella or rain gear if the weather looks wet. Bring binoculars if you have them, something to drink and any nature guides that you think would be appropriate.
