Spread Like Wildflower – See lovely little sights of spring as they change all season long!
With the unpredictability of the spring season, Weekly Wildflower Walks in your Geauga Park District will cover the early and late flowers over the course of four Mondays, 1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.: May 1st at The West Woods’ Affelder House, May 8th at Headwaters Park’s Route 322 Entrance, May 15th at Swine Creek Reservation, and May 22nd at Big Creek Park.
With this year’s unusually warm winter bringing flowers out earlier than normal, participants to one, some or all of these walks will get a chance to watch the progression of an early spring on the forest floor. Naturalist Judy Bradt-Barnhart will also share interesting folklore, name origins, pollination strategies, mythological associations and Native American and pioneer uses along the way.
Walks will be on fairly level terrain, held rain or shine, and do not require registration. Mark your calendar and plan to make one of these Nature Not to Be Missed adventures in your parks this spring!
