Lead by Shirley Braunlich, this walk is a unique opportunity to visit a historically significant limestone cave and a large natural spring. The site was important to the Blackbob band of the Shawnee Indians during their time in Kansas. We will see some spring ephemerals among the maturing oak-hickory woodlot. We will carpool from the Overland Park Arboretum parking lot. Meet at the northwest corner of the parking lot at 9:30am.
