At AOA’s Lamb Preserve along Big Darby Creek the warmth of the spring sun spurs on a big reveal of some of Ohio’s most beautiful wildflowers. During the peak of the season the pastel purples and bright yellows of the large masses of white trout lilies stun the imagination. On yet another day, bellwort, delphinium, drooping trillium and dutchman’s britches create a sense of wonder.
Mercer Woods Old Growth Forest is an orchid lover’s dream! yellow lady’s slippers, fringed, purple fringeless and showy orchis are just a few of the treasured finds on the property.
At AOA’s Kleinmaier State Nature Preserve (SNP) in the Hocking River valley, pink lady’s slippers and flame azalea are just a couple of the many flowering species and part of the reason to participate in this hike.
Bison Hollow’s spectacular waterfalls and stunning cliffs highlight this visually pleasing preserve in the southern part of the Hocking Hills and would be enough to satisfy a nature lover. However, this landscape is also filled with a plethora of native wildflowers such as Virginia bluebells, twin leaf, trilliums and columbine.
If you love wildflowers, please join us on Sunday at 7:00 p.m. for a Zoom presentation and visual tour of several AOA properties and the wildflowers you might see on upcoming hikes during the year.

We hope to see you there!
Time: The zoom presentation will start at 7:00 p.m. and will last approximately one hour.
