Spring Wildflower Hike at Morgan Swamp

Ohio

Hike the trails of Morgan Swamp Preserve in search of spring wildflowers with naturalist and nature center volunteer Chuck Fletcher.  

At nearly 2,000 acres, The Nature Conservancy’s Morgan Swamp Preserve is one of the largest privately protected forested wetlands in Ohio. The swamp is home to an abundance of wetlands including swamps, bogs, beaver ponds and vernal pools. A rich diversity of plants and animals call it home, from the beautiful white calla lily to the tiny four-toed salamander hidden among the vernal pools. 

The trails at Morgan Swamp are easy to moderate difficulty and are unpaved.

The group will meet at the Dr. James K. Bissell Nature Center which is located on the preserve within the Grand River Conservation Campus.

Join us after the hike to learn about gardening to attract butterflies - details here.

Open to the public; all ages welcome!
