Saturday, April 11, will be a busy day at the Refuge:
Spring Wildflower Walk #2 (10:00 am), Garlic Mustard Pull (following the walk), and Nature Center Open House 10 am to 2 pm.
The Wildflower Walk is on the Martha Clay Wildflower Trail, just past the first bridge on Carpenter Creek Rd. off KY 37. Parking will be available in the field on the left side of the road just past the Trail entrance and at the main entrance to the Refuge. Dr. Anne Lubbers, Professor of Biology at Centre College and an expert on plant ecology, will lead the walk.
Immediately following that event, Dr. Lubbers will lead a Garlic Mustard Pull along the roadway toward the main Refuge entrance. Bring a good pair of garden gloves. Instructions will be provided.
For both events, wear long pants, sturdy shoes, and dress for the weather.
During and after the wildflower walk and pull, the Cheek Nature Center will be open for visitors (10:00 am to 2:00 pm). Drop by and see the exhibits, ask questions about the Refuge, and take a rest stop.
