Introducing Wildflower Information Stations: Shenantaha Creek Park

Before today’s rains started falling, I placed two Wildflower Information Stations along the nature trail at Shenantaha Creek Park.  For those of you who frequent that park, take a stroll toward the end of the nature trail near the park’s southern boundary (where the overhead powerlines cross the creek).  As you approach that boundary, you’ll notice (for the next couple of weeks) these signs off the left side of the trail.

Wildflower Information Station – Canadian Wild Ginger

Wildflower Information Station – Toothwort

If you have a smartphone, use your QuickRead bar code scanner to download info about each wildflower mentioned at each information station.

As the seasons progresses, one or more signs will be placed elsewhere along the trail to replace these signs to continue to educate visitors about other wildflowers that can be observed at this park.

This is a collaborative project with the Town of Malta Department of Parks, Recreation, and Human Services.  If you observe these signs during a visit, please let me know what you think about your experience.

During my visit, I saw these blooms elsewhere along the trail –

Dutchman’s Breeches

Wake Robin

Leatherwood

Happy trails!
