Join Severson Dells and the Natural Land Institute staff and volunteers on an exploration of many of the local wildflower hotspots. Wildflower Walks showcase what is currently in bloom at various woodland and prairie preserves around Winnebago, Boone and Ogle Counties. All walks will begin at 6:00 p.m. There is no fee for the walks, but membership in Severson Dells and/or the Natural Land Institute is encouraged. For more information, please call 815/335-2915 (SDNC) or 815/964-6666 (NLI). You can find all the 2019 Wildflower Walks here: http://www.seversondells.com/guided-walks
Barbara and Dan Williams will lead this walk at Rockford Park District’s Anna Page Park. We will travel through a variety of plant communities, from creek bottoms to maple forest to view marsh marigolds, trillium, blue-eyed Marys and numerous other spring flowers. Moderate hiking, possibly with muddy areas.
We will meet at the large parking lot at the westernmost point along the park loop road (not the parking area by the playground and bathrooms).
