Name: Summer Wildflowers at Peterson Natural Area
Date: August 17, 2019
Time: 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM EDT
Event Description:
"You belong among the wildflowers..." is not just the line of Tom Petty song; we think it's a sentiment that everyone can embrace!

Join us on Saturday, August 17th, 2019 from 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM for a wildflower hike at one of the CWC's underappreciated preserves. Much of the 79-acre Peterson Natural Area is composed of open fields that are perfect for summer wildflowers. We'll find different species of wildflowers in the wet meadow along the creek that bisects the preserve and in the dry sandy hillsides and swamp near the back of the preserve. Expect to see lots of butterflies and other pollinators!

As there are no trails throughout most of the preserve long pants are recommended.

Peterson Natural Area is located near Big Rapids on the corner of 180th Avenue and 11 Mile Road. The parking lot is along 180th Avenue.

Directions to the preserve

Don't want to drive? We will be carpooling from Chipp-A-Waters Park (1403 W. High Street) in Mt. Pleasant at 12:00 Noon.
