"… to be used for nature study and as a preserve for birds and other wildlife."- Carmen Hambleton Warner
There are three different azaleas flowering now, including Mountain azalea and Pinxter. If you haven’t seen our native Flame azalea before, you’re missing out! This species is endangered in Ohio, and is one of the most beautiful flowers you’ll ever see. It should begin to bloom this week.
Tomorrow and next weekend are the last of the spring wildflower hikes. There is alot to see, and we have lots of “fun facts” to enlighten you with.
Also tomorrow is our International Migratory Bird Weekend bird hike. I think the official name is Wahkeena Warblers and Wildflowers, or something like that! We’ll be meeting in the parking lot and the cost is only $3 per person, and as usual OHS members are free! I’ll post a list of new birds we see, tomorrow. This year should be nice; last year it poured down rain almost the whole time.
