- Take a wildflower walk
Spring is a wonderful time of the year to go outside to explore all the changes that are taking place and watch your world come to life after winter. Do you know what Spring Beauty looks like, would you recognize a Jack in the Pulpit flower? Discover what is growing in your backyard, neighborhood, park, botanic garden or local nature center by taking a hike. We have lots of great parks in Elkhart County for you to explore on your flower hunt.
Weather can change rapidly in the spring so make sure you dress appropriately.
