Spring has finally made its way to Oxford and with spring comes beautiful flowers blooming all around. Each year, nature lovers can enjoy seeing and learning about wildflowers in our own backyard. These walks are guided by Miami botanists and are free and open to the public.
The walks will be held each Sunday and participants will meet at the Peffer Park Pavilion at 1 p.m. From there, a guide will lead the group to the Silvoor Biological Sanctuary, known for its displays of trillium, bloodroot, hepatica, phlox, wild geranium, blue-eyed Mary, trout lily, anemone, May apple, Dutchman’s breeches, bluebells and larkspur.
Silvoor will look different each week as new wildflowers start blooming. Be sure to wear sturdy shoes as trails may be steep or have exposed roots. Walks are sponsored by Miami’s Natural Areas.
The dates for the 2017 Wildflower Walks are:
April 16 (Easter)
May 14 (Mother’s Day)
We hope to see you there!
