15 people joined Tana Herndon of the Virginia Native Plant Society on a warm, sunny, Saturday morning to explore the August wildflowers blooming at Ivy Creek.  The walk meandered along the native grass fields and into the pollinator garden.  More than 35 species of trees, grasses and wildflowers were identified and discussed including evening primrose, wingstem, crownbeard, horsemint, elephant's foot, whorled milkweed, American hazelnut, winged sumac, wild senna, partridge pea, mountain mint,  and climbing milkvine.
