Wildflower walk is set

On Sunday, May 9, the Chautauqua Watershed Conservancy will hold its annual Mother’s Day Wildflower Walk at the Bentley Nature Preserve, located on Bentley Avenue, Jamestown.

To help with social distancing, the conservancy is offering two group tours, the first starting at 1 p.m. led by local naturalist Jack Gulvin, and the second at 2 p.m. led by Becky Nystrom, conservancy board president. The walks will follow the Pamela A. Westrom Wildflower Trail.

Participants should dress for the weather and also wear footwear appropriate for the typical muddy conditions of a wooded wetland. Face masks are required for all participants. All other current COVID-19 safety protocols will also be followed.

Advance registration is required, and each group is limited to 15 people. A $5 donation per individual or $10 donation per family for non-Chautauqua Watershed Conservancy members is suggested. Registrations are being made online via www.eventbrite.com/e/mothers-day-wildflower-walk-registration-151704073969.

To register by phone, call Tracy at 664-2166, ext. 1001.
