[April 10, 2013]  ELKHART -- Enjoy the spectacular wildflowers on Elkhart Hill as part of Elkhart's "Celebrate Spring!" April weekends. The Elkhart Historical Society's Wildflower Nature Walks are scheduled for 9 a.m., 10:30 a.m., 1:30 p.m. and 3 p.m. on April 13 and 20. Walkers will depart from the Birdsong Books & Vintage Shoppe, 111 Gov. Oglesby St. in historic downtown Elkhart.

Each outing will last approximately 90 minutes, and walks are limited to 15 people. The outing will be on foot, so walkers should dress for the weather (rain or shine), wear good walking shoes and bring insect repellent.

Master Gardeners in Macon, Sangamon-Menard, McLean, Peoria and Logan counties can obtain continuing education credit for the walk. Contact your Master Gardener coordinator directly for credit.

To complement the walks, the Elkhart Historical Society is offering a special "Walk with Lunch and Lecture" at noon on each date. Lunch includes soup and half-sandwich or quiche, with dessert and beverage, at Wild Hare Café, 102 Gov. Oglesby St. in historic downtown Elkhart.

Reservations are required. The cost for the Wildflower Nature Walk only is $10 for adults and $7.50 for children 12 and younger. For the walk, lunch and lecture, the cost is $20 for adults and $15 for children 12 and younger. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Make this a family event.
