Event details

Join us for a family-friendly program to celebrate the spring wildflowers, called ephemerals, that thrive in shady Thorn Creek Woods. It will be lots of fun for everyone, including a wildflower photo display, exhibits, games, crafts, refreshments and an Earth Day raffle. Join us for a hike at 2 p.m. to discover which species are in bloom and learn their names and examine their physical appearances.

This program is sponsored by the Jim Marzuki Fund for Public Programming.
