April showers bring wildflowers.
Join Patoka River NWR wildflower enthusiasts Marietta Smith and Linda Wilcox and discover what is blooming on the Refuge on Saturday, April 21, (rain date April 28) at 9:00 a.m. CST.
Meet at the Boyds Trail parking lot and plan to drive or carpool to a designated location on the Refuge. Exploring will be off trail through the woods. Suitable clothing and shoes, as well as insect repellent, are suggested. To get to the Boyds Trail parking lot, head east on SR 64 through Oakland City.
Just outside of the city, look for the brown Refuge sign and turn left on CR 1275E. In a half mile, bear left on paved 1300 E which becomes gravel. Continue one mile to the parking lot located on the left side of the road. For more information call (812) 749-3272.
