64°F, Partly Cloudy

Winds 8mph SSE

In other words, today was the perfect day for a walk to Little Bateau Lake.  Little Bateau Lake lies on the southeastern border of Conserve School’s campus, only a short walk from the Lowenstine Academic Building.  It happens to be a favorite fishing spot for the students this semester.  While walking out to the lake you can find an abundance of wildflowers and seedlings.  Starflower (Trientalis borealis) is a white flower with seven petals that blooms between May and June.  Fringed polygala (Polygala pauciflora), a beautiful little magenta flower, is a member of the Milkwort family.  Both flowers can be found all along the Easter Seaboard, the Midwest, and into Canada.  Maple seedlings and ferns are also beginning to dot the forest floor wherever they can find the space and sunlight.  The trails at Conserve School have certainly come back to life!
