May Day Wildflower Hike, Wednesday, May 1, 2019 at 1:30pm to 4:30pm

Visit a unique natural area -- the Edwards Lake Cliffs Preserve -- on a guided afternoon hike with botanist Robert Wesley. This 84-acre preserve protects one of the rarest environments in the local region – the lake cliffs – and hosts abundant and diverse early spring wildflowers. The preserve also offers a number of scenic vistas that can be best appreciated before the tree canopy fully leafs out. Please dress for the weather and wear comfortable hiking shoes.

Fee:    $10 ($8 for members) Pre-registration required.

When the road bends right, in 0.2 mile, turn left onto Teeter Road. The preserve begins at the end of Teeter Road, about 0.5 mile from the corner. You can park along the end of the road.
