Farmersville to Wagonner Green Diamond Trail
By Angela Karban:
On Sunday, May 17, Don and I scouted our first trail of the 2015 Trailblazers Challenge. We rode our bikes on the tree-lined asphalt path from Farmersville to Waggoner, the Green Diamond Trail. We saw and listened to the melodic songs of many birds, including cardinals, robins, wrens, blackbirds, Baltimore orioles, and the beautiful indigo bunting. There was an abundance of milkweed plants along the edges which will feed the Monarch butterflies later in the summer. And the sweet smell of the honeysuckle flowers was still in the air. It was a delightful ride on a windy Sunday.
Come join us for the group walk at 9:00 a.m. on May 30th to start the season. A light breakfast of orange juice and granola bars will be served at the Farmersville entrance. Bring your binoculars to view the birds more closely.
