May 5 @ 9:30 am 1:00 pm

A GUIDED TOUR OF LOCAL WILDFLOWERS

The 22nd Annual Stiff Creek Wildflower Walk is a wonderful opportunity to learn about native plants for people of all ages. Members of the Native Plant Society of Texas will help you identify native wildflowers growing in the countryside.

What to Wear: Long pants, closed toe shoes, sunscreen, and insect repellent are recommended.

What to Bring: your camera, wildflower guides, binoculars, swimsuit (if you want), and a brunch item to share after the walk. We plan to start at 9:30 with brunch around noon. Please bring your brunch item ready to be served. We can keep your items hot or cold but cannot cook or heat them.

Directions: 4545 CR 412, McKinney, TX 75071 (Home of Brett and Brigette Laplante)

From the intersection of Hwy 5 (N McDonald Street) and Hwy 380 in McKinney, go east on 380 about 1 mile to Woodlawn Ave (CR 331) where there is a Circle K service station on the northeast corner. Turn left and go 2.1 miles to the end of Woodlawn. Turn left on Texas Farm Road 2933 (no sign) and go 3.5 miles to CR 412. Turn right on 412 but it is more like going straight as 2933 curves to the left. Go about 1.2 miles and turn left into the driveway at 4545 CR 412. You can park along the driveway. You will see trucks and a flatbed trailer with hay bales for the wildflower walk.
