Churchville Park • September 1

Black Creek. My wife and I went on a scouting expedition last night in preparation for a kayaking trip on Monday. There were a few people in the water with their kayaks and they appeared to be having a great time. The scenery along the creek was beautiful!

White Turtlehead. This wildflower species is on the New York State list of protected native species. They are listed in the "exploitably vulnerable" section. This usually means that people harvest them for any number of reasons and that if unchecked the harvesting has the potential of wiping the plant out.
