Spring at the Lake Wildflower Walk April 30 at Nolin Lake
BEE SPRING, Ky. -- Nolin Lake State Park, in cooperation with Friends of Nolin Lake member Carl Suk, will offer a “Spring at the Lake Wildflower Walk” on Saturday, April 30, at 9 a.m. CDT.
Participants may enjoy discovering spring wildflowers such as Spring Beauty, Bluets or Quaker Ladies, Jack-in-the-Pulpit and Rue Anemone along the 1.6 mile Waterfall Trail.
Suk will explain the ecology of the area as you are guided through upland forest. Guests will hike past a fruit producing pawpaw patch as well as a very large population of walking fern.
Participants are asked to meet at the parking lot above the boat ramp near the trail head at 9 a.m. The trail is a moderate trail to traverse and the hike will last approximately two hours. Sturdy hiking shoes are recommended; bring water and a trail snack as there will be ample opportunities for rest stops along the way. A floral checklist will be provided for those who would like to record the plants they see.
Following the hike, enjoy a picnic and relax. Other activities for the day include a cornhole tournament and music provided by the Friends of Nolin Lake. For more information contact firstname.lastname@example.org
