Parrish Oak Savanna State Natural Area Father's Day Outing

Looking for a Father’s day outing?  Come explore TPE’s 30-acre Parrish Oak Savanna.  It has a diverse savanna and woodland flora with 240 native species.  Spiderwort, frostweed, alumroot, and roses should be in bloom.  Savanna birds, such as red-headed woodpeckers, bluebirds, and many others, should be active, so bring binoculars.  The preserve consists of a rugged dolomite-capped ridge underlain by sandstone, with outcrops, that provides for a scenic view of nearby Brigham and Blue Mounds Parks, so be prepared for uphill walking.
