Field of Smooth Coneflowers.

Natural Escapes With Jerry Reynolds: Picture Creek

Wednesday, June 30, 11:00am–noon

Join us as Jerry Reynolds, Head of Outreach, takes you on a virtual hike at Picture Creek Diabase Barrens. Museum staff have been leading field trips to this location for over 20 years, though you won’t find it on a map or in travel guides. Home to thousands of federally endangered Smooth Coneflowers that bloom every June, Picture Creek is truly a special place that requires an experienced guide to lead you. We can’t lead a field trip in person this year as we normally do, but we can lead you on a virtual field trip!  Please join us on this natural escape to Picture Creek and learn about the efforts to restore it to its original natural state.

Current membership and preregistration required. Recommended for ages 12+, but all ages welcome. Not a member yet? Join today!
