Wildflower Weekend – Natural Bridge @ Natural Bridge State Resort Park
Apr 3 all-day

Join us for this year’s Wildflower Weekend April 3-4 at Natural Bridge State Resort Park. This event offers wildflower hikes Friday and Saturday. The guided hikes, led by some of the best botanists in the state, will explore the region’s rich natural history and resources in the state park and the Red River Gorge. Hikes will cover various topics including wildflowers, ferns, woody plants, bryophytes, plant identification 101, and more. Friday evening, there will be a social to meet your fellow native plant enthusiasts. We are also offering an outdoor yoga class Saturday afternoon.

Our keynote speaker this year is Mike Homoya. Mike is a recently retired botanist and plant ecologist who worked for the Indiana Department of Natural Resources Natural Heritage Program since 1982. He discovered, inventoried, and assessed natural communities and surveyed for rare species. He shared his knowledge, experience, and enthusiasm about plants by authoring several books, teaching at the collegiate level, and serving as president of professional science associations. His most recent publication is a children’s book titled Wake Up, Woods. He will give a presentation Saturday evening on the rare plants and natural communities along the Ohio River, from Cincinnati to the Mississippi River. You will also hear from three of our student grant recipients who will present on their graduate research projects.

This event is open to the public and kid-friendly. Registration is on-site at the Hemlock Lodge in the lobby. Admission is $10.00 for adults, $3.00 for ages 12-17, free for ages 12 & under. Discounted KNPS memberships will be available. If you would like to volunteer and help out with the registration desk, please sign-up here: https://tinyurl.com/u2xxx77

The hike schedule will be posted once finalized.
