Wildflower Walk: Death, Spirits & Other Strange Tales
Saturday, April 11, 10:00AM-12:00PM
Steelhead Beach Regional Park, 9000 River Road, Forestville
Free, parking $7
Discover the spring beauty of your Regional Parks by joining our wildflower walks on Saturdays from March 21-April 25. The theme of this walk at Steelhead Beach Regional Park on the Russian River is "Death, Spirits, Alcohol and Other Strange Plants & Tales." Sounds interesting, doesn’t it? Learn about some stranger plants that grow here, how they are connected to our nation’s history of alcohol, and how some plants emit poisons.
Our annual wildflower walks are free and led by volunteer Phil Dean, a Master Gardener who will identify native plants, discuss the drought's impact on this year's flowers, and share stories specific to the flora of each park. Most walks start at 10:00AM, last about two hours and proceed at an easy pace. Meet in the Highway 12 parking lot for a prompt 10:00AM departure. Parking is $7 or free for Regional Parks members. We'll hike in light rain, but heavy rain cancels.
