Wildflower Walkabout- Colored Sands Forest Preserve

May 29 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Our ever-popular Wildflower Walkabouts, offered in conjunction with the Natural Lands Institute, showcase what is currently in bloom at various woodland and grassland preserves. Lee and Lynda Johnson, long-time naturalists, will lead the group on an exploration of the sand country at Colored Sands Forest Preserve. The plant community is unique to dry sand prairies, which once dominated this area but are now very rare. Meet at the Sand Bluff Bird Observatory parking lot, at the end of Haas Road near Durand, with your wildflower book (if you’d like) and bug spray. Easy to moderate hiking.
