Join Wild Ones for a spring flower hike at Raccoon Creek State Park Wildflower Reserve, led by Chris Kosin. The 314-acre tract, originally purchased in 1962 by the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy, contains one of the most biodiverse and unique stands of wildflowers in Pennsylvania. More than 700 species of plants can be found along the 4.5 miles of trails, between a variety of habitats including oak-hickory forest, pine plantations, meadows, and riparian forest. Late April will provide us with beautiful native blooms like trout lily, hepatica, bluebells, phlox, larkspur, trillium, Dutchman’s breeches, and more!

Please register below to attend this walk. As you embark on this spring flower hike, ensure you are prepared for a delightful journey amidst nature’s vibrant tapestry. Bring comfortable walking shoes, and be aware there may be mud. Bring a water bottle and a light snack if you’d like. Dress in layers, as spring weather can be unpredictable. Embrace the joy of discovery and immerse yourself in the blossoming wonders of the season!
