Clay Cliffs Spring Wildflowers Hike Sunday, May 7th, 2 pm
May brings a cacophony of sounds, scents and sights that suggest wildlife populations are busy producing their next generations as they mate, nest, feed and teach their youngsters, and prepare for their next stage in the survival game. While evidence of last century homesteading offers hints of the domestic day-to-day activities of early Leelanau settlers…other areas serve as priceless “libraries” of high-quality native species of plants that at one time covered Leelanau. This species richness continues to host many of the animal species that preceded human settlement. Join Conservancy docents Ann McInnis and Janet Ward as they speculate on earlier homesteading as well as discover emerging spring wildflowers blooming before the leaves emerge to shade the woodlands.
