Woodland Spring Wildflowers at Wyandotte County Lake Park, 9am-11am. Meet up in the main parking lot by the Park office: take the left fork when you come in the 91st entrance at the South end of the Park. Spring wildflowers and maybe some wild orchids along the base of the Missouri River bluffs by the dam. Some trails may be steep and muddy if it has rained recently,so good boots and jeans recommended. Elizabeth Petroske (epetroske@hotmail.com) and Ken O’Dell.

Report

6 people attended the event.

On April 6 we had 6 people show up, all KNPS members, one from McPearson Co, and we were out till after 12 instead of 11 so everyone must have been having fun. Things actually looked pretty good even though it was 40 degrees most of the morning- lots of spring beauties and dutchman's breeches, still some bloodroot blooming, mayapples leafing out, lots and lots of trout lily leaves and toothwort.
