The Flower-a-thon is a quest in search of beautiful wildflowers throughout the Western Wildlife Corridor. It’s a day of hiking the beautiful forested hillsides of the Ohio River valley.
Start time is 8 to 9am, with Panera’s bagels and coffee at the shelter at Embshoff Woods. We will then head out into other nature preserves where you can join hikes led by experienced wildflower enthusiasts. Here you will have the opportunity to observe uncommon wilflowers like the drooping trillium, gorgeous blue eyed Mary, the delicate fern leaf phacelia, and with a little luck, the elusive green dragon.
You can then enjoy the Wildflower Festival held this year at our new Kirby Nature Preserve at 2 Main Street in Addyston, Ohio. There will be lots of vendors offering nature themed art, jewelry, products and plants as well as representatives from local nature conservancy organizations. Food trucks on site will provide our lunch.
The per person fee is $15 which includes breakfast and lunch. The Flower-a-thon is an excellent opportunity for you to increase your knowledge and appreciation of our native wildflowers while supporting the WWC’s important mission. We would love to have you join us. For more information please call Tim Sisson at (513) 922-2104.
All proceeds from the event will benefit the Western Wildlife Corridor, a not-for-profit all volunteer land trust dedicated to preserving and protecting the Ohio River Corridor from the Mill Creek to the Indiana state line. I hope you can join us for a great fun filled day celebrating Nature.
