McLean Nature Preserve Cardinal Flower & Joe-Pye Weed Hike

This event has ended

Massive areas of wildflowers are in bloom in the flood plain of the north branch of the Kawkawlin River as it crosses our preserve.  This longer hike of about two miles will visit our 1/8 mile long peninsula bounded on the east by a stream and on the west by the river and will feature meadows with yellow coneflowers and wooded areas as well as the flood plain.  For those wanting a shorter walk, other options are available. This event is co-sponsored by Saginaw Basin Land Conservancy and is free and open to the public.
