Join us for a Spring Wildflower Walk at O’Hara Woods!

Led by
Pat Armstrong
Botanist, Educator, Author
Vice-President of our Chapter

We should see many early spring wildflowers in the woods including Bloodroot, spring beauty, Dutchman’s breeches, Virginia bluebells, violets, skunk cabbage and others. We might be lucky enough to find Blue-eyed Mary and Blue cohosh.

Spring is very slow this year. We need a few more WARM sunny days to bring out the flowers.

Driving Directions
Go south on Rte. 53 toward Romeoville. Pass under I-55 and continue south. There is a stoplight where the Normantown Road comes in on your right. Continue south on Rte. 53.
The next stop light is in Romeoville at Belmont. Turn right (west) on Belmont and follow it through a subdivision.

When you come to a cross street called Beverly Griffin, you will see a small lake across Beverly Griffin.
Continue west on the road which goes around the right (north) side of Lake Strini. The road will curve to the left (heading south) around the west side of the lake.

There is a paved parking lot at the southwest corner of the lake.
We will meet there at 10 a.m. on Saturday, April 23.
