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. 

Deer Run Forest Preserve

Mike Groves of the Forest Preserves of Winnebago County will lead us on this walk through Deer Run Forest Preserve. We will enter between two prairie restorations undertaken in 2000 and will compare a burned with unburned prairie (one side is slated to be burned in early spring). Spiderwort should be in full bloom, white wild indigos, pale purple coneflowers, and butterfly weed will be starting to develop flower stalks and heads.  June grass will be flowering and setting seed. We will then hike along the Kishwaukee River trail through the floodplain forest.  We should hear frogs and migrating birds.  Located 3 miles southeast of Rockford on River Road at 5691 River Road, Cherry Valley.
