About this event

Join the knowledgeable BBA instructor Rivka Schwartz on this guided walk. This wildflower walk will lead you through the trails of Beaver Brook in search of Witch-Hazel. The American witch-hazel is a deciduous tree that sheds its leaves in the winter. The flowers are a rusty yellow and are pollinated by wind. The leaves turn yellow and brown before falling off. The history of the American witch-hazel dates back to Native Americans, who first discovered the healing properties of the tree. By using the roots, stems, and bark of the tree and boiling it down to a decoction, they created witch-hazel extract, which was used to treat swelling and burns. Registration is required Cost: BBA Members (FREE), $10 Non Members
