Wildflowers at John James Audubon State Park

Known as one of the earlier blooming spring flowers, spring beauty can be found on all of the trails at John James Audubon State Park

Henderson, KY-We’ve managed to cover all of April’s average rainfall amount in one 48 hr timeframe. This weekend, however is supposed to be beautiful for the Wildflower Extravaganza. Wildflower hikes are scheduled for 9am, 11am, and 1pm at the Audubon Museum. If you’re on our trails, you’ll see Harbinger of Spring, Cutleaf Toothwort, and Spring Beauty. Dutchman’s Breeches, Squirrel Corn, Trout Lily and Recurved Trillium leaves dot the sides of the trails just waiting for the best time for the flowers to make their appearance. The rain may have pummelled most of the early-blooming Bloodroot flowers but many more spring flowers, like Dwarf Larkspur, Appendaged Waterleaf, and Jack-in-the-Pulpit, are on their way.

With the recent rainfall and more on its way, the ground may be saturated. Use caution when hiking, trails may be slippery.
