Come enjoy the beauty of summer wildflowers on a FREE walk through the sand prairie! Join Ranger Katie on a “plant identification ramble” to learn which flowers are blooming and about the wildlife they support. We may walk up to two miles on paved and gravel surfaces but will likely walk less as there’s a lot to see nearby! This event will best be enjoyed by teens or adults, but all ages are welcome.
