2018 Wildflower Walkabout Series

Come experience the north central Illinois landscape. Walk where flowers carpet the forest floor and birds fill the air. Severson Dells Nature Center and the Natural Land Institute are the organizing agencies of the event, with local groups providing leaders from their organizations. All walks begin at 6:00 p.m.

Colored Sands Forest Preserve

Join Sand Bluff Bird Observatory’s naturalists Lee and Lynda Johnson for a wildflower walkabout tour of the beautiful sand country at Colored Sands Bluff Nature Preserve. The vegetation is unique to dry sand prairies, which once dominated the area but now are very rare. This easy level walk will be a great hike for beginners as well as the experienced. Bring a wildflower book, binoculars, and bug spray. Meet at the Banding Station parking lot at the end of Haas Road near Durand.

Co-Sponsored by: Natural Land Institute/Severson Dells Nature Center
