About the Event
The Spring Flower Walk has been a South Woods Park tradition for over four decades. It was canceled last year due to COVID-19 concerns, but returns this Spring on Saturday May 1st at 1:00 p.m. The Walk will be guided by Ripon College Professor Emeritus of Biology, Skip Wittler and Assistant Professor of Biology, Ben Grady.
South Woods is known for its spring ephemerals which bloom early and for a brief period before the canopy closes. The Walk will be an introduction to the identification of these ephemerals and the natural history of South Woods.
Walk Details: - Masks will be required, but the outdoor setting will allow for modified social distancing. - The natural-surface trails can be uneven; those used for the guided Walk are of “easy to moderate” difficulty. - Boots are recommended if there has been rain recently. - Children are welcome. - The Walk usually takes between 75 and 90 minutes. - Meet at the South Woods Park entrance, located at N7974 Union St. just north of Skyline Circle. - Limited parking is available in the lot but parking is allowed on both sides of Union Street and Skyline Circle.
