This event was originally scheduled for 4/9/14. Actual date will be announced once we have a better idea of when the spring ephemerals are going to be visible.

Come and enjoy an evening celebrating the recovery of one of the loveliest displays of springtime ephemerals close to town (whether you are coming from Dexter or Ann Arbor). ?Toni and Ken Spears along with a lot of other folks have been working for the past few years to rescue this area from an overwhelming number of invasives.

Early April is the beginning of the spring wildflower season, and we hope to find one of the earliest bloomers, harbinger-of-spring, which has been observed previously at this park. The lovely small woodlot near the Huron River has a wealth of wildflowers, and we?ll look for other early starters, such as bloodroot and the large patches of false rue anemone and trout lily. ?The trillium, wild ginger, and cutleaf toothwort typically appear a bit later, but who knows what this weather pattern might bring. Large chinquapin oaks also live here.

The wildflower walk is free and open to the public, but there is a $5 vehicle entry fee for the park. ?Please do not bring pets. ?(734-604-4674) ?If it Is warm, come early and have a picnic.? (Park closes at 8pm.)
