Nature Walk 2

I decided for my second nature walk to go back to Bartlett Arboretum and Gardens, the same place I did my first walk. The same group went with me, my dog, and mom, and we decided to take two different trails from our first trip. The temperature was colder than last time, making the walk more enjoyable; it was 75ºC during my walk on Thursday. The walk started at 3:10, and we walked for roughly 30 minutes this time. I took A little more observations this time and saw different ferns, angiosperms, and gymnosperms. There were fewer gymnosperms on the walk, but I still saw one or two of them. I like walking at Bartlett even though I wish there were more land, but still, it has great trails. Nature walks are more entertaining when you can classify plants from an angiosperm and a gymnosperm or whether the angiosperm is a monocot or dicot. These walks are rewarding, and I love that this is an aspect of this class.

Nature Walk 1

I took my nature walk at Bartlett Arboretum and gardens in Connecticut. I decided to see if any of my family members wanted to join me on the walk, so my mom and dog accompanied me. It was fairly warm with sunny skies and little wind. The temperature read 86ºC out, but the shade from the trees didn’t make it too bad. The time I was Wednesday from 3:00PM to 4:00PM but only took photos in the first 30 minutes. The bugs were slightly annoying but not unbearable. I really liked walking along these trails. This was the first time I have been to that location, and it was really enjoyable. I had no trouble finding different moss, fungi, and lichen on this walk and it was really fascinating applying the knowledge that we learned this week with the actual environment outside. It is always good to take a step back from the books and respect the true beauty of the experience.
