Wild Ones Lake-to-Prairie Chapter Field Trip
The Wildflowers of Wright Woods?..A Spring Nature Walk with Leigh Stewart, Lake County Forest Preserve District volunteer Environmental Educator.?
It?s finally spring and time for our first field trip of the year. We will be visiting Captain Daniel Wright Woods to see the many spring wildflowers in bloom. Gorgeous natives like Hepatica, White Trillium, Bellwort, Toothwort, Jacob?s Ladder, Trout Lilly, Wild Ginger and many more, cover the forest floor. Besides the beautiful wildflowers Wright Woods supports a rich oak and maple woodland and in spring, the bridge between Half Day and Wright Woods is a popular place to spot migrating songbirds like the yellow-throated warbler or Baltimore oriole. This place has it all! Binoculars and cameras are a must-have for this outing.
Please join the Lake-to-Prairie Wild Ones and?our LCFP guide Leigh Stewart, for a morning of beauty and wonder in the woods.
Captain Daniel Wright Woods Forest Preserve, Mettawa, IL.
