Friends of Havenwood Park hosting spring wildflower event in Colwood

Casual hike on tap for Saturday afternoon off Veteran's Memorial Parkway

Enjoy a relaxing and educational walk this weekend through a 40-acre forest with well-groomed hiking trails meandering through mature trees, ferns and Garry oak meadows.

The Friends of Havenwood Park invite the public to join them Saturday (April 25) for their Spring Wildflower Event. From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., the organization will host guests in the park – between Latoria Road and Cairndale Road off Veteran’s Memorial Parkway –  to hear from special guest Andy MacKinnon, co-author of Plants of the Pacific Northwest Coast and tour the grounds.

Snacks and refreshments will be provided. Friends of Havenwood Park are requesting people dress for the weather and wear sturdy, closed-toed shoes or boots for the walk.

Sign-in for the event runs from 11 a.m. to 11:15, so attendees are asked to please be on time. Please RSVP to friendsof havenwoodpark@gmail.com before the event so they know how many to expect.
