Cleveland Metroparks second annual Tour of Wildflowers celebrates the arrival of spring in a fun and interactive way. The tour encourages people of all ages to discover wildflowers and capture their beauty with photos. Whether you consider yourself a wildflower enthusiast, or you would just like to learn more about the natural beauty that accompanies spring in the Park District, make sure you sign up for the tour!
Joining the tour is easy. Register at clevelandmetroparks.com to receive the wildflower checklist and contest rules. There will be a tour kick off event at North Chagrin Nature Center on Saturday, April 4 from 2 - 3:30 p.m. Participants can learn wildflower spotting tips and tricks, as well as see pictures from last year. Next, make sure you get outside! Wildflowers can be found everywhere from North Chagrin Reservation to Rocky River Reservation. Just make sure to bring your phone or digital camera with you so you can take a �selfie� with a bed of spring beauties, or snap a picture of a wild geranium. From April 1 to June 6, find as many flowers as you can and complete your checklist. Once you have your photos, email them to firstname.lastname@example.org, or bring them to your nearest Cleveland Metroparks nature center for verification!
Participants will end the tour on a high note! With a completed checklist, participants will receive their very own Tour of Wildflowers T-shirt, and will celebrate their success at the Tour Party on June 6 from 2 - 3:30 p.m. For more information on tour rules and registration, call 440-473-3370 or visit Clevelandmetroparks.com.
