Wildflower Tour at The Overland Park Arboretum
Lynda Ochs and Ken O’Dell will lead a wildflower tour at the Overland Park Arboretum on two different dates in April 2018. The first tour is at 10a.m. on Wednesday, April 11th. The second tour is one week later at 10a.m. on Wednesday, April 18th.
We will meet at the visitor center both days, split into two groups with Lynda leading one group and Ken leading the other group. We will be walking on mulched paths, up and down slopes and hills as we go to the lower bluff area at Wolf creek.
The arboretum has 140 acres of woodlands that have tens of thousands of the same woodland wildflowers you will see in the Missouri Ozarks. In mid April we should see Wild Columbine, Jack-in-the-Pulpit, Wild Ginger, Toothwort, Blue-eye Mary, Aunt Lucy, Delphinium, Dutchmen’s Breeches, Bloodroot, Bed Straw, Wild Geraniums, Wild Blue Phlox (perhaps two species), Virginia Waterleaf, Maple-leaf Waterleaf, Wild Impatiens, False Rue Anemone, Turks Cap Lilies, Solomon Seal, False Solomon Seal, May Apples, and a few others. We should see thousands of flowers on the Pawpaw trees.
Registration is not necessary. Just show up at the visitor center.
