[April 23, 2018]  LINCOLN - Even though the weather has been whimsical this year, the Elkhart Historical Society Will be hosting Wildflower Walks each Saturday, starting today, Saturday, the 14th of April.

You can take advantage of this wonderful opportunity by reservation only. The tours will be guided by Dr. Pam Moriearty*. Master Naturalist and Gillette Ransom who has also done extensive research on the fauna and folklore/medicinal use in the past. They will share the beauty and variety of the ephemeral spring wild flowers on Elkhart Hill. The wildflower walks will be April 14th, 21st and 28th at 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.

Dr. Moriearty will be with us on the 4 o’clock walk on the 14th and the 10 o’clock walk on the 28th.

The finale on April 28th, includes a 6:00am or 4:00pm bird walk, with Ornithologists Rhetta Jack, Lara Borgerson, and Joe Funk all superior birders with fascinating knowledge of the birds, not only of Elkhart Hill but in many places around the world. Come sharpen your skills or learn for the first time.
