Skunk cabbage hike

BEAVERCREEK — the Beaver Creek Wetlands Association for a hike in Siebenthaler Fen to look for signs of spring 10 a.m. to noon, Saturday, March 9. The first indicators in the wetlands is the skunk cabbage blossom. The plant blooms before it sends up leaves. It has a remarkable ability to produce heat, which allows it to emerge and bloom even when the ground is frozen.

The parking area is located on Fairgrounds Road just east of Beaver Valley Road. Dress for the weather. Although the trail is easy, there may be standing water, ice or mud. BCWA is a local, volunteer organization working to preserve wetlands. For more information contact us at 937-320-9042 or at admin@beavercreekwetlands.org.
