“The Earth laughs in flowers.” ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
Join our celebration of Spring as WWC presents the 9th annual Flower-a-thon on Saturday, April 27th. This years “wildflower quest” includes a flexible menu of nature walks, food and fun for the whole family. Our veteran wildflower enthusiasts will guide you to woodland sites adrift with native species including Shooting star, Drooping trillium, Blue-eyed Mary and many others. This is also an excellent opportunity for you to see some of the many WWC nature preserves.
Join us at 8 a.m. for a Panera bagel breakfast at Embshoff Park and a wildflower walk. We will be then taking wildflower hunting walks at other locations iincluding our beautiful Delshire Preserve. A 1 p.m. walk on “Bender Mountain” trail will give you an opportunity to observe, not only beautiful native wildflowers, but also panaoramic views of the Ohio River Valley and Kentucky hillsides. After meeting on Bender Road, we will also hike at other great locations in the afternoon.
To round out the day please join us at EarthConnection, on the campus of Mount St. Joseph College, at 5 p.m. to enjoy a lasagna buffet . A wildflower presentation will be given by Denis Conover, Associate Professor of Biological Sciences at the University of Cincinnati. Everyone is welcome and we hope to see you on April 27th!
A $15 fee pays for the breakfast and the evening dinner. This is our biggest fund raiser of the year! Donations will enable us to continue our important mission to purchase, preserve and protect precious hillside habitat along the Ohio River now, and for future generations.
