Wild Flower Hike
March 17 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
Join our Forest Rangers for an easy 3/4 mile walk to observe and identify early spring wild flowers. Call now (828 692-0100) to reserve your spot! You must sign up for this program to participate. We are likely to see some early ephemerals such as Oconee Bells, Trout Lilies, Bloodroot, and more! The program is limited to 20 people but if there is enough interest another hike may be offered. We will meet at the main kiosk in the parking lot at 10am. We recommend bringing comfortable shoes, a water bottle, a camera, and a wildflower field guide. The guided hike is set to end at 12pm but there is much more at Holmes Educational State Forest that you can explore on your own time! We offer secluded picnic areas and a variety of educational exhibits.
