Despite an ominous forecast, the rain held off and a hearty crew attended the annual Lynn Firth Wildflower Walk on May 5th to explore Fisherman's Cove forest!

This year's walk was held at a new property, Fisherman's Cove, located by the confluence of Sandy Creek and the Allegheny River in Venango County.

The property may be new to FSF, but it has a rich and ancient history, including an overlook spot that was used by Native Americans to scout the river.  It was donated to FSF by the Fisherman's Cove Preservation Foundation in December of last year. We were thrilled that some of the donors attended the walk and shared some of their knowledge of the site.

Some of the day's finds included tea berry, mayflower (not yet flowering), wild geranium, spring violets, bluets, rue anemone, native azalea among the mountain laurel, and a rare surprise: a pink lady slipper in perfect bloom.  

Thank you to everyone who attended, to celebrate the season and this special place!
