Join horticulturist/botanist Carl Suk as he guides you on the second annual “Nolin Lake Wildflower Walk”. The spring ephemerals like Spring Beauty, Bluets or Quaker Ladies, Jack-in-the Pulpit and Rue Anemone should begin to emerge. Known as the Waterfall Trail for the natural waterfall on the property, it is moderate to traverse. Sturdy hiking shoes are recommended; bring water and a trail snack as there will be ample opportunities for rest stops along the way. A floral checklist will be provided for those who would like to record the plants we see.
Meet at the parking lot near the trail head.
