Bender Mountain Spring Ephemeral Walk

Public Welcome Family Friendly Free Event Nature Walk/Hike Free Public Parking Lots of Physical Activity

As Spring approaches and nature brings new life to our landscapes, most of us will be ready for a hike or two. We are offering members a wildflower hike to Bender Mountain, which is highly regarded as one of the best places in SW Ohio to view spectacular native Spring ephemerals, especially Blue-eyed Mary. This property is owned and managed by Western Wildlife Corridor, and their invasive species removal efforts reward us with the return of our native flora and fauna on this beautiful hillside along the Ohio River.  We could see Cut-Leaved Toothwort, Sessile and Drooping Trillium, Wild Ginger, Woodland Poppy, acres of Blue-Eyed Mary, Greek Valerian, Dutchman’s Breeches, Wild Hyacinth, Miami Mist, Fernleaf Phacelia, and many more. In addition to wildflowers, native trees and shrubs will be leafing out among an abundance of wildlife. You will likely see a migrating warbler or two! Cost: Free. Leader: Joyce Richter of Western Wildlife Corridor. RSVP is required due to limited space. RSVP to: [email protected]
