Dig the Dunes second hike to be held this Sunday.
There are still a few tickets available for this Sunday’s hike, and with the forecast showing 72 and sunny, it looks like it may be the perfect day! On this hike, we will explore the spring ephemeral wildflowers in Warren Woods, MI. (not to be confused with Warren Dunes!).
Join Indiana Native Plant and Wildflower Society (INPAWS) North Chapter President Steve Sass as we explore Warren Woods State Park; one of the region’s premier places to view spring ephemeral wildflowers. Wildflowers in bloom may include Bloodroot, Yellow Trout Lily, Hepatica, Dutchman’s Breeches, False Rue Anemone, Limestone Bittercress and much more. Participants will learn a bit about the physiology, history and folklore of the plants along the way, and late April should provide us with a number of migratory birds to hear and observe as well. The relatively easy to walk path leads along the Galien River, and depending upon the weather, it could be muddy in spots, so participants should wear suitable footwear. Binoculars and cameras are also highly recommended accessories
An optional picnic lunch from Bartlett’s Gourmet Grill will also be available. Please purchase lunch ticket if choosing this option. Lunch will include a sandwich, side and soda. Picnic Tables are on site.
These hikes are a great way to meet others that love the dunes! Learn about the different trails, bring your camera and enjoy this area where we live.
