On Tuesday, August 8, the Friends of Wapello volunteer group will host a free wildflower walk in the prairie at the Wapello Land and Water Reserve. Along with JDCF staff, the walk will be led by an area wildflower expert from the Northwest Illinois Prairie Enthusiasts. This restored prairie is the best of its kind in the area, and the blooms will be at their peak for you to view. The hike will take place on mowed trails from 6-7 PM. This event is free and open to all.
