Trout lilies blooming now at Wolf Creek Preserve

The Wolf Creek Trout Lily Preserve is aglow with blooms, and it is time to go out and tour the preserve before the blooming season comes to an end.
Officials say the preserve will be open through the end of February or until the final blooms. Volunteers will be there each day and guides are available for tours at 1 p.m. and 3:30 p.m.
Visitors are reminded the blooming is dependent on sunshine and warmer temperatures so full bloom typically occurs in the afternoon.
Gates to the preserve remain open for self-guided tours and trails are marked.
In addition to the trout lilies, trilliums and twayblade orchids, to name a few, are visible.
Officials say the continued support of the Whigham Community Council makes it possible to have guided tours. Volunteer tour guides will also share flyers that include discounts to Whigham Diner, L-Three Gifts at Bond’s, Hairitage, Gabby’s Rustic Designs and Truly Unique Ceramics and Gifts.
The Whigham Community Council and City of Whigham are big promoters of the trout lily preserve, which is the largest concentration of trout lilies known, and use images of trout lilies on downtown banners.
Officials say that volunteers are also needed during the off-season to help maintain trails and remove invasive plants.
During February, an exhibit on the preserve is being showcased at Roddenbery Memorial Library. For more information about Wolf Creek Trout Lily Preserve or to become a volunteer visit wolfcreektroutlilypreserve.com.
