Join us for our next field trip and 

Celebrate Spring with a Wildflower Walk in Low Gap Park

When: Sunday, April 19, 1-3 PM

This is a family friendly walk. We will not be botanizing as much as getting out to see what wildflowers we can discover this month as we walk the park's trails. Bring field guides if you want and wear good walking shoes. We will have copies of the new park wildflower guide available for $2. Meet at the parking lot at 1:00.
