Join Dave Bonta and his mother, naturalist-writer Marcia Bonta, for a slow, Mother’s Day walk through one of central Pennsylvania’s best spots for spring wildflowers — not to mention the Oriskany sandstone rock formations that give this state forest natural area its name. Due to the unusually cold spring, blooming dates are about two weeks behind throughout our area, but Martin’s Gap, as it’s also known, is such a rich site that it has plenty of wildflowers in bloom from early spring till summer.

Pack a lunch and meet us at the parking area along the road at the intersection of Frew Road and the orange-blazed Standing Stone Trail at 10:00 AM. To whet your appetite, read Stan Kotala’s “On the Trail” column about the place. Contact Marcia: 684-3113 or marciabonta@hotmail.com for more information.
