    Join us for a program to learn about wildflowers whose colors and textures decorate the summer landscape! In June, many early-blooming wildflowers, including fields of wild lupine, unfold their flowers. This creates an array of bright colors and textures, along with a beautiful scene as they decorate the oak savanna landscape.

    This previously scheduled Wildflower Tour has been modified to a virtual program. The Facebook Live program will provide you with information and stops along the Prairie's Edge Wildlife Drive to facilitate a self-guided tour.

    Led by Friends Contractor Jenny Hengel.
