Check out the Spring Flowers This Weekend

After a walk in the woods today it's apparent that many spring flowers are "spring-ing" forth much earlier than they normally do. So this Sunday, April 29, would be a perfect day to view many of them along the Saline River during a free nature program by the Washtenaw County Parks and Recreation.

From 2:00-4:00 p.m. at the Draper-Houston Meadows Preserve participants will search for the many wild flowers that bloom in the floodplain forest area and nearby woods. Families will find Blue cohosh, Solomon’s seal, trilliums, Dutchman’s britches and many more species.

The ground may be wet though, so be sure to wear appropriate clothing and shoes/boots than can get  wet and muddy.
