Wildflower Walk in the Offield Reserve

with Brad Von Blon

When the winter snow melts in Michigan, a variety of wildflowers begin to emerge, some of which grow nowhere else on earth. Our state and our planet are home to a vast variety of life—known as biodiversity. Many of these flowers bloom in abundance. Others are at risk of disappearing. Because the loss of one species can speed up the loss of others that depend on it, scientists say we must act urgently to help nature rebound this decade—and that will require big commitments from countries, companies and communities.

Just a few miles from downtown Harbor Springs, the Offield Family Preserve has become a favorite community destination for wildflower viewing, hiking, dog walking (on leash), and nature classes. A mix of open meadows and forested hilly woods are found. Seasonal ponds are known as vernal pools and are especially common in spring and fall.

Join Brad Van Blon, of the Little Traverse Conservancy, on a walk through the preserve identifying and appreciating the beauty and importance of different wildflower species.
