FUTURE EVENTS FOR APRIL 2020 AND BEYOND
WILDFLOWER HIKES - Tuesdays in April
As she does every year, Mary Ann Layman will lead wildflower hikes each Tuesday in April
The hikes will start in the early afternoon to give the flowers a chance to open up.
Each week will be at a different location known for the diversity of its wildflowers and
you will see different varieties as the month progresses. These hikes, several of which will
include lunch suggestions before the hike, are very popular and informative. Indiana's woods
are uniquely beautiful when the spring wildflowers are in bloom, which regrettably lasts only a few weeks.
C&O CANAL ONE DAY HIKE - date not yet determined
Although it requires a lot of conditioning, please consider joining Theresa Ray for the mid-Atlantic regions
