Be a Citizen Scientist at Sam’s Point

When do the flowers bloom? When do the leaves fall? We are very curious to find out! Be a scientist for the day and help Sam’s Point staff monitor seasonal changes in our plant communities. During this family program, we’ll observe and identify blooming, fruiting, and budding native plants along a three-mile loop hike around Lake Maratanza. This program is recommended for adults and children over the age of eight, accompanied by a parent or guardian over the age of 18. Participants should come prepared with water, snacks, sunscreen, and appropriate footwear. All unvaccinated participants are encouraged to wear face coverings and keep a minimum six-foot distance away from others who are not part of their immediate household. All visitors, regardless of vaccination status, are encouraged to wear a mask when inside buildings. Meet at the Sam’s Point Visitor Center. Pre-registration is required by calling Sam's Point at 845-647-7989.
