*In Person* Native Plant Walk - June

Join Phil Stokes for this June Walk at Ivy Creek Natural Area, which will return to being an in-person walk.  Those coming on the walk must be vaccinated, or wear a mask and socially distance.  We should find several species of flowering milkweed and mints attracting a host of pollinators.  In the woodland we'll see the strange looking Indian pipe and unusual flowers of skullcaps as well as black cohosh.  Marsh area will delight us with arrow arum, arrowhead, and wild hydrangea all in flower.  Co-sponsors:  Ivy Creek Natural Area and the Jefferson Chapter, Virginia Native Plant Society.  Meet by the Kiosk near the parking lot.  Free and open to members of the public.

Be in the Know!

About Ivy Creek

Scenically shadowed by the Blue Ridge Mountains, the Ivy Creek Natural Area (ICNA) is a 219-acre preserve bordering the South Fork Rivanna Reservoir in Charlottesville, Virginia.

With seven miles of trails traversing a mix of upland woods, pine stands, fields, streams, and shoreline, ICNA is an ideal site to learn about the rich natural history characteristic of Central Virginia.
