The McLean Nature Preserve will host a foxglove walk at 2:30 p.m. on June 18 on the west side of the Kawkawlin River on West Erickson Road.

Guests are invited to watch the summer wildflowers continue to grow. The walk will cross some newer trails and allow visitors to view the tallest tree on the preserve at approximately 100 feet tall.

Routes will be determined by rainfall as wetlands are common.

The hike will begin at the west gate of the preserve across from 2793 W. Erickson Road. Those coming from the east should head north from the 2199 N Flajole Road driveway to Townline 16 Road, then west to Bay-Midland County Line Road and south to the Erickson Road gate. Those coming from Midland should take Levely Road to Bay-Midland County Line Road and turn right onto West Erickson Rd.

This event is co-sponsored by Saginaw Basin Land Conservancy and is free and open to the public. McLean Nature Preserve is located at 2199 N. Flajole Rd., Rhodes, in northwest Bay County. For directions or more information, call Jim or Shirley McLean at 989-631-3067 in Midland. On the day of the program, they can be reached at 989-698-6239.
