We will be looking at plantings and restoration projects at various stages and with different management histories. Shooting stars, wood betony, and other spring flora will be in bloom. See what happens when seed supplies of both shooting stars and betony are nearly unlimited! Both species were mainly planted in fall or winter with broadcast seeder or by hand. Depending on weather we may have spring orchids in bloom, including showy orchis. Be prepared for weather, ticks, etc. Hikes will be from 1/2 to 1 1/2 miles long, depending on what’s in bloom, where, and stamina of participants.
Directions: Meet at Bluestem Farm, S5920 Lehman Rd, Baraboo. Look for blue mailbox with Bluestem Farm on south side of box. Park by garage. Be aware that many nice species grow along the driveway, particularly on the east side, including our gentians.
