Hikers Venture Off the Beaten Path to Enjoy a Colorful Late Summer Show

On August 31, local naturalist Gary Krofta led hikers on an exploration of the marsh at the Anthony Lawrence Wildlife Preserve in South Attleboro.

Hikers are shown here observing insect pollinators in a patch of Joe-Pye-weed.

A colorful variety of late summer wildflowers was on display in the marsh at the Anthony Lawrence Wildlife Preserve, including orange jewelweed (or spotted touch-me-not, impatiens capensis), Joe-Pye-weed (pinkish-purple flower at top of photo), goldenrod, and the invasive purple loosestrife (at bottom of photo, lythrum salicaria).
