Have you seen those wildflower posterboards in the Jacksonville Woodlands and wondered where to find the flowers? April is a wonderful time to see wildflowers of all kinds. Join us for a moderate hike to see beautiful examples and to learn about where they are likely to bloom—in shade or sunshine. Our guides are Larry and Linda Smith, who know every trail of this beloved Jacksonville treasure. We hope for sunshine but walk will go on if weather is a bit wet—dress appropriately. If rain is heavy the session will be held indoors with photos at JCC.
