Walk around the Lake with Greenbelt Biota. This will be a leisurely walk around Greenbelt Lake. On a large flat dirt trail. A good portion of the trail is in the shade.
We will meet in the parking lot on Field House Rd., i.e. between the lake and St Hugh of Grenoble church. Here is the Google Map location: https://goo.gl/maps/VFtxcPjvppsgbS239
The lake has a lot of interesting plants to observe, probably because its location is believed to have been a breaded stream – before being dug (by hand) by CCC workers during the construction of Greenbelt in 1937. We plan for 3 hours but in this case it may be less. Anyone can leave the group whenever they wish.

And the name? Oh, who knows. Have you ever tried to agree on a band name? Well, we can tell you this: A black shag is a bird, from New Zealand (the Maori people call it a Kawau). Yes, it’s black. And sherpas?  You may know them as famous Nepali mountaineering guides. So there it is.(6 to 8pm)
