Come celebrate glorious spring with a Spring Wildflower Hike at Harms Woods! Known to be one of the best spring wildflower sites in the region, this hike is sure to bury the bitter cold memories from this past winter, while exciting us for the start of our growing season.
Become familiar with an amazing woodland, where decades of restoration work have created habitat for a host of rare plant and animal species. Get to know people just like you, who are interested in learning and helping care for our shared natural heritage.
Don't know anything about plants? GOOD! We’ll be sure to create a positive learning environment for everyone, where more experienced folks can share their knowledge with newbies. North Branch Restoration Project volunteer stewards will also be present. They are valuable mentors for all of Habitat 2030, and are an amazing source of information about our prairie, savanna, woodland, and wetland ecosystems.
Hikes will be offered at 9 am, 11 am, and 1 pm. This event is open to the general public, but it would be great if Habitat 2030 can stick together, so let us know if you're planning on attending the 11 am or 1 pm slot. Or, if you're a morning person, let us know if you're thinking about the 9 am slot and we'll discuss.
Park at "Glenview Woods" parking lot on Harms Road, just south of Glenview Road: https://goo.gl/maps/aOGR7

Please dress for the weather. Be sure to bring a water bottle, sunscreen and bug spray. Binoculars are also encouraged, as Harms should be abuzz with migratory warblers!
