Visit a unique natural area -- the Edwards Lake Cliffs Preserve -- on a guided afternoon hike with botanist Robert Wesley. This 84-acre preserve protects one of the rarest environments in the local region – the lake cliffs – and hosts abundant and diverse early spring wildflowers. The preserve also offers a number of scenic vistas that can be best appreciated before the tree canopy fully leafs out.   Please dress for the weather and wear comfortable hiking shoes.
