Take a WALK on the WILDflower side with us!

The Jean Dorney Memorial Wildflower Walks begin Saturday, Oct. 9, at Morningside Nature Center. The walks will take place every Saturday in October and start at 9:00 am.

The walks are guided by a Morningside Nature Center staff member. During the walk, participants will enjoy the spectacular fall wildflower bloom at the park. Each week, the walks will be different in focus, participants are asked to please call the office if they would like to find out the theme for the dates they wish to attend.

Please meet at the Education Office and wear comfortable walking shoes. It is also suggested to bring any guide that may be of use along the walk.

Wildflower walks at Morningside Nature Center, 3540 E. University Ave., are offered free to the public courtesy of a grant from the Friends of Nature Parks in honor of charter member Jean Dorney.

Jean, a Texas native, moved her family to Gainesville in 1972. She quickly became involved with the Alachua Audubon Society and was a founding member of Friends of Nature Parks (formerly Friends of Morningside). Through the years, Jean was an active advocate of adult education programs at the nature parks and participated in many wildflower walks and natural history classes.

For more information about attending the walks and exploring the natural parks as Jean loved to do, please visit www.natureoperations.org or call (352) 334-3326. Take a WALK on the WILDflower side with us!
