This is a great opportunity to see a variety of grassland spring wildflowers—penstemons, milkvetches, blanketflower, native grasses and many more. Additionally, there will be opportunities to learn about, hear, and see endemic grassland songbirds. If there is an interest, we can also look at and learn how to ID grasses with vegetative characteristics.
Easy to moderate hiking. The hike will take place at the Nature Conservancy’s Matador Ranch in Phillips County. Meet at the ranch bunkhouse at 7:45 am. The Matador Ranch is located 35 miles south of Malta on Highway 191, turn east down driveway at mile marker 119. Optional: bring binoculars and hand lens.
