Sope Creek Unit; Fox Creek Wildflower Loop Trail
Wednesday; April 25, 2009
2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Description: Join National Park Service Ranger Jerry Hightower for a walk through a beautiful hardwood forest amidst native ferns, flowering shrubs, and wildflowers. Learn facts and a fable or two about Native American and Colonial uses of some of our wonderful native plants. A great diversity of native wildflowers and ferns will enhance this hike. Imagine this area as farm fields instead of forest as we walk along the traces of nineteenth century farm roads. Look for paw prints of the many species of wildlife that thrive here and perhaps see a salamander or two from the tiny tributaries.
