Join Institute staff member and biologist, Dr. Doris Goldman on a tour and introduction of Antietam Meadow Park, a 25-acre park located west of North Welty Road along the East Branch of Antietam Creek in Washington Township.

Dr. Doris will guide participants around the area and talk about the meadow, its native plants and animals, and the Antietam Creek that runs through the park.

“During the program, we will try skipping stones in the creek, scatter milkweed seeds, look for flower stalks taller than we are, as well as looking at the flora and fauna of the area,” said Goldman. 

Goldman is a plant ecologist with a Ph.D. in biology from the University of Illinois.
