Midweek Wildflower Walk: Brecksville Reservation, Cleveland Metroparks. Our sixth wildflower walk of 2015 will be on Wednesday, May 6, 2015 at Brecksville Reservation, Cleveland Metropark from 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm. Join members Lisa Schlag and Ellen Brown-Armstrong to explore Brecksville's Wildflower Trail. Along with native spring wildflowers, we'll also observe invasive plants that are threatening the native plants, the Harriet Keeler memorial, and the prairie. Each Wednesday evening during April and May, we will explore the parade of spring blooming woodland flowers from the first skunk cabbage to the final waterleaf and wild geranium.
We look forward to seeing you!!
