Wildflower Festival

  • Saturday, April 12, 2014
  • 11:00 AM - 4:00 PM
  • Yankauer Nature Preserve

The Potomac Valley Audubon Society will hold its annual spring Wildflower Festival on Saturday, April 12th at the Yankauer Nature Preserve

The festival, which is held to coincide with the peak of the spring wildflower season, will be held from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., rain or shine.

It will include guided wildflower walks through the preserve for advanced and beginner/families, children's activities and refreshments.

Guided walks will leave the pavilion on the hour, though visitors are welcome to explore the trails on their own as well.

Admission to all these events will be free and everyone is welcome. No pre-registration is required.

For the seventh year in a row, the festival will also include a special Poetry Walk.  These poems, contributed by local poets, focus on spring themes and will be posted all along the preserve's Kingfisher trail where the majority of wildflowers are found.

During early April, a wide variety of wildflowers should still be on display, including bloodroot, spring beauties, Dutchman's breeches, and rue anemone.

The trails at Yankauer are primitive, so wear sturdy walking shoes. Please leave pets at home and leave the wildflowers for all to enjoy.
