Take a guided wildflower walk from 2-3:30 p.m. Saturday, May 16, the Buckaloons Recreation Area near Warren, PA.

Participants will meet at 2 p.m. at the entrance to the Buckaloons Recreation Area. Buckaloons is located six miles west of Warren, PA, just south of the intersection of U.S. routes 6 and 62.

Buckaloons is a wonderful part of the Allegheny National Forest located on the confluence of the Allegheny River, Brokenstraw Creek and Irvine Run. The woods abound with trilliums, lilies, and a high diversity of colors and kinds of blossoms. The forest fills with flowers in the spring before the leaves emerge to block the sun.

Jeff Tome, Audubon Nature Center senior naturalist, will lead the walk. Tome is a wildflower gardener and photographer who has become an expert on wildflowers after years of searching for them.

The trails are flat and not overly muddy.

The fee is $12 for the public, $9 for Friends of the Nature Center and children 3-15, and free for children 2 and under.

Reservations with payment are required by Monday, May 11. Call (716) 569-2345 or register online.
