Trout lilies and trilliums

I first heard about  Wolf Creek last year. It's an oasis that harbors a myriad of flowering lilies far from their "native habitat". It consists of 140 acres of rolling hardwoods that has an area of 15-20 acres that is blanketed by dimpled trout lilies, with spotted trillium interspersed among them.

This is a beautiful area that is unique for this part of the country. For additional information go to their brochure or their web site . The trout lilies have probably peaked, but it is still a worth while trip to see what conservation of our natural resources is all about.
