Nature Walk #3 10/13

Today I went on a walk to the Houghton Gardens, and it was a beautiful, warm, and sunny day! The theme for this week's walk was plants, and I was able to find an abundance of variety among the plant life during my walk. For example, I found many different types of wildflowers growing, as well as a variety of trees, mosses, and more leaf-like plants. I expected that as I went towards the small river there would be different species of plants due to a slight shift in habitat, but there was not a major difference observed. I also saw many squirrels, and even a chipmunk eating an acorn! It was overall very relaxing to take a break from my work and surround myself with nature for a bit, and also it is very interesting each week to see what a wide variety of organisms there are in local areas if you intentionally look for them.
