CANCELLED-Watson Preserve Wildflower Walk-CANCELLED
April 4 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm
Explore the beautiful Watson Preserve on a wildflower walk led by Joe Liggio. Several orchids at the site usually bloom in April. Look for the Rose Pogonia (Pogonia ophioglossoides), Tuberous Grasspink (Calopogon tuberosus) and Grass-leaved Ladies Tresses (Spiranthes praecox). Just a few of the other interesting blooms you might see at this time include Jack-in-the-Pulpit, Zigzag Bladderwort, Redring Milkweed, Pink Sundew, Mayapple, Hollow Joe-Pye Weed, Dwarf Trillium, Canadian Wood Betony, Red Buckeye, Pale Pitcher Plant, American Snowbell, and Wild Azalea.
Try to arrive by 9:00 — the walk will start by 9:30 am. If you are late, just catch up with the group (It’s only 10 acres). Attendance will count towards Advanced Training for Longleaf Ridge Master Naturalists.
Driving directions: The preserve is off of US-69 in Warren, TX. From US-69 turn east on County Road 4770, drive about half a mile to the bridge and then across the dam. At the top of the hill turn left on CR-4777. About a quarter mile on the left is the entrance to the preserve and a parking area. There are no restroom facilities on the preserve.
