Also known as Moccasin-flowers, Lady’s Slippers are a unique member of the orchid family which require highly specific habitats in order to grow. Join George and Gail for a walk through Walden-Parke Preserve to view the multitude of Lady’s Slippers in that area.

In the past two years, George and Gail have seen hundreds of dainty pink, white and yellow Lady’s Slippers scattered throughout the preserve. Please join us as we go in search of these rare beauties!

As the area is wet, we strongly suggest boots and bug protection. Walk leaves from the Tamarack Trail kiosk. Remember please to stay on the trails – take home only photos and memories in order to preserve the delicate ecology of the preserve.

(Rain date 6/1/12 if necessary.)
