Third Annual Friends of Nolin Lake Wildflower Walk

Hey everyone, The Friends of Nolin Lake organization is hosting a wildflower hike on April 13.  Pre-registration is required (Call[masked] or Email [masked]) but you can sign up here to arrange ride sharing if you want. There is a limit of 20 people on the hike but if there is enough interest, a second walk will be arranged.

The group will meet at the parking area (near the trailhead).

Join horticulturist/botanist Carl Suk as he guides you on the second annual “Nolin Lake Wildflower Walk”. The spring ephemerals like Spring Beauty, Bluets or Quaker Ladies, Jack-in-the Pulpit and Rue Anemone should begin to emerge. Known as the Waterfall Trail for the natural waterfall on the property, it is moderate to traverse. Sturdy hiking shoes are recommended; bring water and a trail snack as there will be ample opportunities for rest stops along the way. A floral checklist will be provided for those who would like to record the plants we see. This is a 1.6 mile hike.
Meet at the parking lot near the trail head at Nolin Lake State Park.

Carl Suk is former Natural Areas Land Manager for Louisville Metro Parks at Jefferson Memorial Forest. He has lived at Ambassador Shores (Nolin Lake neighborhood) for the last 17 years. When not performing duties as a Summer Park Ranger, he works as a volunteer with the Army Corps of Engineers doing a comprehensive vegetation analysis of the flora of Nolin Lake, mapping of rare plant locations and locating invasive species. To date he has cataloged over 800 species and preserved over 150 specimens for for scientific study.

Carl welcomes volunteers to help with his nature projects.
