Houdek Dunes Guided Walk + Orchid Pre-hike Sunday, May 28th, 1:45 pm
Orchids…and more orchids! Pink lady slippers (moccasin flowers) hopefully will be in full bloom at Houdek Dunes…perhaps over a thousand protected (by law) orchids. Houdek will have many other wonderful nature surprises this time of year for hike participants to discover while exploring the diversity of wildlife communities that call Houdek home. Join docents Ann McInnis and Beth Chiles who will be delighted to guide folks on an interpretive walk in this magical natural area. Special bonus: The hike officially begins at 2pm but plan to arrive early at 1:45 pm for a short educational opportunity to learn about Leelanau’s orchids from specialist Chuck Dickerson.
