Wildflower walk, 8 May 2010

The Mountain Watershed Authorities Trillium Bedannual wildflower walk in the Indian Creek Gorge will be held on Saturday, May 8 at 9AM. Meet us at the entrance to the Indian Creek Gorge (turn toward Camp Christian from Rt. 381 between Normalville and Mill Run, near the Mill Run Reservoir) for a leisurely 1-2 mile hike in the gorge. Wear sturdy shoes and a jacket, and bring water. Our wildflower walk is led by local naturalist and MWA Board Member Lisa Smith. Please contact Lindsey with any questions! Call her at 724-455-4200.

If you want an unguided wildflower walk we suggest the first mile of the rails to trails from Champion to Indianhead. Here is a link to the MAP. We have been walking this trail for years and Abe has identified over 150 different wildflowers on this first mile. The trillium and marshMarsh Marigold marigolds are in bloom. The Marsh Marigolds are a yellow plant growing in a wetlands area on the left about .2 miles on the trail and the trillium at the 1 mile marker on the left. See our previous blog for more on this spectacular wildflower bed. .
