Plan to be a part of the fall wildflower walk at Tuttle Creek Lake, led by KNPS guides. This is an opportunity to see and learn about the fall flowers of the Flint Hills such as: boneset, tall thistle; curly cup gumweed, liatris (gayfeather); several different species of sunflowers and also goldenrods and native asters. Each participant will receive a free copy of A Pocket Guide to Kansas Flint Hills Wildflowers and Grasses to use during the hike and then take home. So we will know how many to expect for the outing, please preregister with UFM Community Learning Center 785(539-8763) or info@tryufm.org. There is no registration fee. In case of rain, the walk will be held the following day at the same time.
