Bird & Nature Adventures | Cherokee Marsh, North
Winter Native Plant Walk with Eva Roos ~ Join Master Naturalist Eva Roos for a free and family friendly guided plant walk. Plant guides tend to show green summer foliage and bright flowers. Fortunately, our native Wisconsin prairie wildflowers boast sturdy tall stalks, distinctive leaves and tough flower seed heads that stand up even in winter, making them relatively easy to find - and a fun challenge to identify. Dress Warm.
