Spring time is here and Cloudland Canyon State Park is enhanced with a wildflowers blooming in the park.
Larry Williams, an expert on area wildflowers will lead a 45-minute walk on April 13, at 10 a.m., to show and talk about the beautiful flowers, blooming shrubs and trees. Other wildflower walks will be lead by Stephanie Fischer, the park naturalist periodically.
The tours, known as wildflower walks, will trace the park’s cleared trails and feature an array of plant life, including tulips, Spanish bluebells, irises, corn flowers, and larkspur.
The announcement comes just in time for April, when a majority of Georgia’s 343 species of wildflowers will come into bloom.
“Spring is the perfect time to visit Cloudland Canyon State Park,” said park manager Bobby Wilson. “Soon redbuds and dogwoods will begin to bloom, followed by rhododendrons and mountain laurels. Whether you enjoy sightseeing, hiking, disc golfing, geocaching, fishing, or staying for the night, we have something to offer during this beautiful season.”
Admission is free with a $5 parking fee.
