(BEDFORD) - Plans have been finalized for the annual White River RC&D Wildflower Hike on Saturday, April 30. The popular event will be held at Feldun-Purdue Ag Center in Lawrence County.

The wildflower hike will be led by Kay Yatskievych, author of Field Guide to Indiana Wildflowers and Carroll Ritter of Outdoor Connections.

Mark Spreen will be catering a barbeque pork lunch for all those who join us for the hike. We've found that the camaraderie of eating together outdoors gives people a chance to visit with Kay and Carroll, and enriches the experiences. Anyone who has had Spreen's barbeque knows it's a treat in itself as well!

A morning and afternoon session will be offered, each led by Yatskievych and Ritter. A maximum of 25 people are accepted for each session and the hikes fill up fast. The morning hike will end with the barbeque lunch, and the afternoon hike will begin after the lunch.

A modest $12 fee is charged which includes lunch. Registration for the morning hike begins at 10.0 a.m. with the morning hike from 10:30 a.m. till Noon. The afternoon hike will be from 1 p.m. to about 2:30 p.m.

Feldun-Purdue Agricultural Center is at 1117 State Road 458 west of Bedford, IN. Follow the signs to the registration and lunch area on the Farm. Participants are encouraged to bring their cameras and wear sturdy shoes. Dogs are not allowed. The hikes will be held in light rain, but will be canceled in case of storms.

In previous years the hikes have filled up early, so make your reservations early by contacting Michael Wilhite at the Orange County SWCD, 573 SE Main St, Paoli, IN 47454 or call (812) 723-3311 ext. 3, or email The White River RC&D Committee looks forward to having you join us for another great hike.
