Woodland Wildflower Walk along Shunga Creek • Shawnee County

Saturday, May 9th, 2015 @ 10am
Felker Park • 2540 SW Gage Blvd • Topeka, KS • Map

See spring woodland flowers in the woods along Shunga Creek. Volunteers have been clearing Amur honeysuckle from the woods since 2010. This invasive shrub elimates the native wildflowers. With the honeysuckle gone, the native plants will rebound. Some flowers we should see include blue phlox, Virginia waterleaf, paw paw, violets, and others. Meet at the Felker Park parking lot at the Tennis Courts off of Gage Blvd. Walk is limited to 12 people so RSVP Jeff if you plan to attend.
