Mammoth Cave National Park will celebrate Wildflower Day on Saturday, April 13 with ranger and volunteer led walks, talks, and activities beginning in the park at 9:30 am. Wildflower Day events are free and open to the public with no reservations required.
Mammoth Cave National Park is home to over 100 species of spring wildflowers. Each year the park’s wildflowers and blooming trees treat park visitors to colorful displays along park trails, roadways, and forests from early spring until mid-May. Wildflower Day provides a chance for visitors to learn about what is blooming in the park and the important role wildflowers play in our human history and environmental health.
Activities planned for this year’s Wildflower Day include wildflower themed walks along popular hiking trails, scavenger hunts, arts, crafts, and puppet shows. Wildflower events are designed to fit all ages and abilities and will take place throughout the day, ending with an evening program at 7 pm in the park’s outdoor amphitheater. A complete schedule and listing of Wildflower Day events can be found at www.nps.gov/maca/planyourvisit/calendar.htm.
