Wildflower Walk

Event Phone: 712.255.3447

Join us at the Geller Preserve north of Rochester for a lovely walk in the woods. We plan to see the extremely rare Indian paintbrush, plus jack-in-the-pulpit, Virginia bluebells, wild geranium, Jacob's ladder, trout lily, wild ginger, columbine, bloodroot, and if we're lucky, the shooting stars will be blooming. It's a somewhat challenging walk over steep hills and we have an unfortunate multiflora rose problem, so come prepared. We'll travel about a mile total, and kids five and up have done the walk with us.

Sponsored by the Cedar County Historical Society. Geller is located in rural Cedar County. Take Snaggy Ridge Road to 265th Ave. Travel about a quarter mile on 265th and the entrance is on the north side of the road.

Part of the extended Iowa Wildflower Week, due to the late spring.
