Nature Hike at North Park:  Meet the Ephemeral Woodland Spring Wildflowers

Saturday, April 20, 2019 at 2:00 p.m.

Springboro North Park, 195 Tamarack Trail

Meet at the concession stand near the parking lot.

This will be a slow-paced, interpretive walk along the paved perimeter path but also exploring the woods and valley down to the creek.  Parts of the trail are steep and may be muddy, slippery, or rough.  We will loop back to the paved path so anyone who is uncomfortable with the hills or unable to manage the steep path will still have an opportunity to participate in a portion of the program.  

The walk will be led by Lynn Johnson, an Ohio Certified Volunteer Naturalist, and Springboro resident.

While the emphasis in on wildflowers, every nature hike is an exploration of our surroundings, in the moment.  We will enjoy what we find as we explore the park, monarch trees, songbirds, geology, and the stream.

Rain Date:  One week later, April 27.  Hike will be postponed for severe weather only.  A walk in a gentle rain can be a lot of fun.

For more information, call 937-477-5239.
