Wildflower Walk at Koltes Prairie, 6pm August 20th.

We have another wildflower walk this week at a great site close to town. These lovely prairie remnants just north of Madison include both mesic and dry areas, meaning there are a variety of beautiful and rare wildflowers to be found here. We'll meet at the Good Oak World Headquarters at 5:30 to car-pool. If you are driving yourself, take Northport Dr. north out of Madison, which becomes Hwy 113. 1.7 miles north of Highway M, take a right turn onto Bong Road Park along the side of the road 0.6 miles east of Hwy 113.

For more information see our wildflower walk webpage.

WIldflower Walk this Thursday (Aug 6th) at the Atwood Community prairie

Just about every day I get to ride my bike past the Atwood Community Prairie on the east isthmus bike path here in Madison. Right now this prairie is a explosion of color with dozens of species of prairie forbs in bloom. So I have made a change to our Wildflower Walk schedule to include a walk around this lovely site this week.

We'll meet at 6pm at the info Kiosk in the mid point of the prairie. This urban prairie is right along the east isthmus bike path, across from the Atwood Community Gardens. Its easy to get there by bike, by car try parking in the lot behind St. Bernard's Church, at the Atwood Community Center, or street parking nearby.

If you can't make it for the wildflower walk, make it a point to take a bike ride out that way soon to enjoy some beautiful native plants.

Wildflower Walk Schedule for Late Summer and Fall announced.

Hi folks, just want to give everyone a heads up that we have put together our Wildflower Walk schedule for the rest of the 2009 growing season. Find all the information about it here.
