Join us for a special spring ephemeral wildflower walk at Yankauer Nature Preserve, located on the Potomac River between Shepherdstown and Martinsburg.
This walk is scheduled to coincide with the peak of the spring wildflower season. A wide variety of wildflowers will be on display including Twinleaf, Yellow Corydalis, Rue Anemone, Bloodroot, Spring Beauties, Dutchman’s Breeches, Cut-leaf Toothwort, and Giant Chickweed.
The trail route includes hills and rocks, so wear sturdy shoes. They can also be slippery when wet. An entire walk may take up to two hours, but participants may leave the group and turn back at any time. We recommend bringing a hiking stick/trekking pole.
Thank you for leaving the wildflowers for all to enjoy!
Participants will meet at the pavilion at Yankauer Preserve. Directions and more information about Yankauer Preserve can be found here: https://www.potomacaudubon.org/preserves/yankauer/.
