Green Day Hike: Pipestem

March 12 @ 4:00 am - 6:00 pm

Join Park Naturalist Julie McQuade for the Annual Green Day hike at Pipestem Resort State Park on March 12, 2022 This year’s hike will follow holes 1 through 9 along the golf cart path at the 18-hole golf course and cover 2 ½ miles. We will meet in front of the Golf Pro Shop at 4:00 pm. Participants will receive a Green Day patch upon completion.

The Green Day Hike patch is a small, round, Kelly green keepsake with a white embroidered shamrock.
The shamrock, a trifolium, is an accepted word from an Irish word for clover. Park naturalists chose a shamrock rather than a four-leaf clover for the patch because a shamrock is a sorrel (Oxalis) and it grows mostly in the shady soil of the woods, near rocks, on mossy banks and pretty much anywhere there is some moisture. Sorrels are possible to find on a trail, roadway and backyards.

Shamrocks are associated with St. Patrick, Irish and other lore, a symbol of empowerment and pride, and medicinal purposes. So, feel free to deck out in your favorite St. Patrick’s day bling. The Naturalists will also hand out green beads before the hike.
