2018 Spring Wildflower Celebration was a success!

On a gorgeous and sunny April 30th, Red-tail hosted our annual Spring Wildflower Celebration at Phyllis and Frank Yuhas Woods. As Red-tail’s most pristine wilderness area, Yuhas Woods is truly a living museum. Bisected by an important creek and wildlife corridor, Yuhas Woods includes a large, upland woods and vast, undisturbed wetland complex. Perhaps the crowning jewel of Yuhas Woods is the near-perfect natural conditions for a spectacular, high-quality display of beautiful wildflowers.

Our Spring Wildflower Celebration is one of our favorite annual events and always draws a large crowd. Thank you to our generous event sponsors, Old National Wealth Management, Gordy’s Fine Art and Framing, and Jack’s Camera Shop.   We thank Woody Statler for his wonderful photography demonstration and judging the photo contest.  We are also grateful for the help of our talented nature guides, Dr. Paul Ruch and Kevin Tungesvick.  Their tours of the woods provide insight about the rich flora. We are ever grateful to our Red-tail Land Conservancy donors and community partners who make the permanent protection of places like Yuhas Woods possible.
