Another Columbia Not-So-Secret Place – Come Explore Lake Kittamaqundi

Lake K from damLake Kittamaqundi now has a wonderful and complete, new paved path all around it with several wooden bridges. Have you walked it yet? If not, come join me as I lead my third walk of the season for the Columbia Association on Sept 24th at 10 am. Meet me at the People Tree on the Lakefront near Clydes.

We will check out the beautiful new rain gardens built as part of the restoration of the Rouse Building for Whole Foods. We will explore all the new plantings of the Kennedy Gardens as well as the wild, native persimmon trees which should be loaded with fruit this time of year.

We will also discuss how the lake was built in the floodplain of the Little Patuxent River which may be a good thing for the river but not so good for the lake when there is a big storm that breaches the narrow perimeter of land between the two. We will also keep our eyes open for all sorts of birds, insects, shrubs, vines, and trees.

Crescent and PlanIf time permits we will discuss the plans for the rebuilding of Columbia, from downtown to the Crescent and Symphony Woods. There is a lot that will be happening over the next few years so it is important to stay tuned.

Take-a-way: Plan to join me this Thursday, Sept 24th at the People Tree. Bring a friend, your walking shoes, and a reusable water bottle.
