Wildflower Walk at the Patoka River National Wildlife Refuge
April showers bring wildflowers. Join Patoka River NWR volunteer, Linda Wilcox, and discover what is blooming on the Refuge on Saturday, April 21 (rain date, April 28) at 9:00 am CST. Meet at Boyd’s 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 Boyd’s Trail parking lot, head east on SR 64 through Oakland City. Just outside of the city, past the brown sign, turn left on CR 1275E. In 1/2 mile, bear left on paved 1300E; it will become gravel. Continue one mile to the parking lot located on the left side of the road.
