Along this nature trail, you will find one or more wildflower information stations over the course of a growing season.  This is a collaborative effort with the Town of Malta Department of Parks, Recreation, and Human Services to educate visitors about the diversity of wildflowers that reside here.  Use your smartphone to scan the Quick Read (QR) bar code on each sign for more info about the wildflower identified at a particular station.  Please leave the signage for other visitors to experience.  Thank you for your cooperation.
