Activities Enjoyed This Year of 2022

Sleigh Ride with Lisa Ringer. We dressed warmly and brought children and grandchildren for the annual horse-drawn sleigh ride through the woods and surrounding farm fields, followed by hot chocolate at Ellie Crosby’s.

Horse Drawn Sleigh

Frog Walk. Liz Weir lead the walk.

Frog or Toad

Spring Ephemeral Wildflower Walk. Sue Galloway lead the walk. Spring ephemerals bloom in that brief interval between the soil’s warming and the leafing of the dense tree canopy. A trained wildflower specialist helped us distinguish beautiful hidden blooms that often go unnoticed.

Rue Anemone Plant

Spring Warbler Bird Walk. Master birders, Bill and Esther Marengo, took us on Wolsfeld Woods’ annual spring warbler walk.

Singing Bird

Ecology Walk. Lee Freilichn is Director UM Center for Forest Ecology and guided this walk.

Aspen Trees

Fall Warbler Walk. Warblers are often plentiful during fall migration. Bill and Esther Marengo were back to help sort out these delightful winged visitors as they pass through Minnesota every fall.
