Ken Allison will lead a tour for MVFN members and friends; a spring tour of Burnt Lands Alvar on Saturday morning, May 30, 2015.

We will spend the morning searching for the special plants that thrive in this unique habitat, such as Fringed Polygala, Seneca Snakeroot and New Jersey Tea. We will also be looking at any birds and butterflies that are present.

We will be looking at alvar woodland, alvar meadows, alvar wetland, and the regenerating burn site to see a variety of different habitats.
