Opportunities for guided wildflower walks at Holtwood

Join PPL’s naturalists for guided walking tours of Shenk’s Ferry Wildflower Preserve from 10 a.m. to noon Monday, April 11, or Thursday, April 21.

Shenk’s Ferry Wildflower Preserve is one of the best wildflower areas in the eastern United States and certainly one of the most popular natural spots in Lancaster County. It is best known for its large variety of woodland flowers — at least 73 species of flowers bloom from mid-March until the end of May, including Dutchman’s-breeches, wild geranium, Virginia bluebells, wild phlox, trillium and spring beauty.

This free program will meet at the trailhead entrance next to Grubb Run. For directions, please visit www.pplpreserves.com, click on “Holtwood” then select “Directions.” For more information contact Karen Ament at 717-284-6274 or kament@pplweb.com.
