07/08/2014 - Summer Wildlife Walks
Join us for a chance to see and learn about our native summer wildflowers that grow along the trail where it parallels the Kalamazoo River. We will also look for butterflies and whatever else presents itself. No prior knowledge is required- only an interest in the natural world and environment. If you do have a wildflower field guide, bring it, and binoculars aren't required but would help you see anything a bit off of the trail. Round trip is maximum two miles and the walking is easy as the trail is paved and flat. Bring insect repellent in case it is buggy. The walks will be held rain or shine, and will take about 1.5 hours.

We are pleased to once again partner with the Audubon Society of Kalamazoo to provide knowledgeable leaders to guide you along the trail and expand your awareness of what is around you. The guided walks are free, fun and educational! All ages are welcome, but children under age 16 must be accompanied by an adult. For questions please call 269-373-5073.

Tuesday, July 15 - 7pm
Saturday, July 19 - 9am

Meet near the campground area at Markin Glen County Park, 5300 N. Westnedge (park fee waived for participants).
