Spring Wildflowers of Audubon State Park—10:00 A.M.: Attend this indoor photo presentation on the typical ephemeral flora found in John James Audubon State Park.

Approx. 45 minutes.

Wildflower Walk–11 A.M.: Join our naturalist for this leisurely ¼ -1/2 mile walk in and around our woods as we try to identify as many early wildflowers as we can. This walk will likely pass by areas of Virginia Bluebells, Cut-Leaf Toothwort, Dutchman’s Breeches, and more. Gather on the Audubon Museum front lawn. Walk will cover an accessible trail suitable for all ages and abilities. Approx. 45 minutes.

Wildflower Walk & Scavenger Hunt–1:00 P.M.: Meet on the Audubon Museum front lawn for this moderately challenging 1-mile walk over hilly terrain. This naturalist-led hike will point out ephemeral wildflowers and will share folklore about the plants.  We will up the fun by making it a scavenger hunt! How many flowers can you check off the list? Approx. 1 to 1.5 hours.
