Join an experienced wildflower gardener, master naturalist and Onondaga Friends Association member for a guided hike on the beautiful Blue Heron Trail. On this half-mile easy walk, you will look for and identify native wildflowers. Some of the wildflowers you may see, are columbine, blood root, wild ginger and spiderwort, along with many more too numerous to list.
Blue Heron Trail at Onondaga Cave State Park boasts some of the most diverse plant species in the park. Come learn the how and why of these native species and how you can incorporate them into your own native wildflower gardens. If time (and energy) permits, the group may opt to hike up to the glade on Oak Ridge Trail.
Wear sturdy shoes and bring water and snacks; after your guided hike you might be energized to hit the other trails in the park.
