When Races Come to Greenway Meadows


What does a botanist do while waiting for the cross-country racers to come? Admire the seeds of common milkweed poised to take flight,

and the coppery tones of broomsedge (a native prairie grass).

It never occurred to me to run any distance anywhere, but what a great way to get kids out in nature, crossing countryside, taming a trail through a wild landscape, testing inner nature in a natural setting. Greenway Meadows: where the bright colors of running shoes meet earthtones, and toned muscles take to the hills.
