Enjoy the spectacular wildflowers on Elkhart Hill on two Saturdays,
April 14 and 21, when David Schroder leads the annual Wildflower
Nature Walks. Schroder is a retired science professor from Lincoln
College and a Master Gardener.
Walks are scheduled for 9:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. on both dates. Each
outing will last approximately 90 minutes, and each group is limited
to 15 people. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
Everyone on the Wildflower Nature Walks will receive a wildflower
"bingo" card to help learn the names of the flowers and to keep
track of the beautiful wildflowers they see on Elkhart Hill.
Reservations are required for the walks. The cost is $7.50 for
adults and $5 for children 12 and younger. For more information and
the online, printable reservation form, go to
Master Gardeners in Macon, Sangamon-Menard, McLean, Peoria and
Logan counties can obtain CE credit for the walk. Contact your
Master Gardener coordinator directly for credit.
The outing will be on foot, so walkers should dress for the
weather, wear good walking shoes and bring insect repellent.

Walkers should meet in historic downtown Elkhart approximately a
half-hour before the scheduled walks. The meeting place is at the
Bluestem Bake Shop, 107 Gov. Oglesby St., for the 9:30 walks, and at
Horsefeathers for the 1:30 walks.
To further enhance the Wildflower Nature Walk experience, a
dinner lecture on the "Wildflowers of Logan County" will be
presented by Schroder at the Wild Hare Café in Elkhart on April 13
at 5:30 p.m.
