Loess Hills Wild Ones
Healing the Earth one yard at a time.

Sioux City, IA area

We’ll meet at Fowler Forest near Smithland at 1 p.m. on Saturday, May 7, to check out spring ephemerals:

Celebrate Iowa Wildflower Month with us!  Walk through the woodland to see the diversity of spring wildflowers.  The trail is easy and well-maintained, and we’ll meander up the hill, chatting and admiring the blooms along the way. Dawn Snyder, LHWO co-president and Dorothy Pecaut Nature Center’s Education Programs Director, will lead the walk and teach us about what we see.  Wear sturdy walking shoes and bring your own water.  View https://youtu.be/Yux76xYTTLk for an introduction to the species we may see.

DIRECTIONSFowler Forest is located 1/2 mile west of Smithland on Hwy 141, (address: 3176 IA-141, Smithland).

The spring ephemeral walk is co-sponsored by Iowa Native Plant SocietyLoess Hills Wild Ones, and the Woodbury County Conservation Board.
Plan to join us at some of the Garden Walks being planned over the next couple of months to see native plants integrated into area landscapes.  We’ll see at least some of the over 10,000 natives that have been sold at our plant sales over the last five years!  Follow us on Facebook and join our Facebook group to be sure you can see notices of these walks and photos from area gardens.
