The first Mother's Day was recognized in 1908, when Anna Jarvis of Philadelphia sent 500 carnations to a church to commemorate her late mother. Perhaps that is why the idea of celebrating our mothers and motherly figures has become synonymous with flowers. Being honored in early to mid-May, there really is no better time to take a wildflower walk than Mother's Day.
Join the park naturalist for a leisurely wildflower walk at Oil Creek State Park. All are welcome to attend this program, mother or not. We will be utilizing the bike trail, which is paved and relatively flat.
Masks are required for all programming at Oil Creek State Park, and must be worn for the duration of the program. Registration is also required, and spaces are limited. Register by clicking the green button, or by calling the park naturalist at 814.676.1810.
