Wildflower Walk at the Chickasaw NRA
Contact: Eric Leonard, 580 622-7282
Come join us to enjoy some of the beauties of spring! Please join a park ranger from the Chickasaw National Recreation Area for a wildflower walk along the trail at Veterans Lake. Learn to identify various wildflowers and a bit about these heralds of the season while enjoying a great walking trail.
The walk will start at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, May 2, 2010 from the northeast trailhead of Veterans Lake Trail. This trailhead is located past the pavilion area, all the way to the road end (not the trailhead on the dam). Please bring water, a hat, sunscreen, and wear comfortable shoes. The walk will last about an hour and everyone is encouraged to continue hiking the trail and/or to enjoy a picnic on the tables by the lake.
For more information please contact the Travertine Nature Center at 580 622-7234.
