3 Tips for Enjoying Wildflowers
If you visit Door County between late May and early July, you are in for a colorful treat. While wildflowers can be found throughout the counties’ trails, it is still important to practice these three Leave No Trace tips so we can protect these delicate treasures for generations to come.
#1. Increase your knowledge by packing a field guide: Looking to find a specific flower? Do your research beforehand so you know whether that species is commonly found in the woods, in meadows, or near the shore. The more you know, the easier the flowers will be to find.
#2. Take only pictures and leave the wildflowers: While wildflowers may seem abundant in our county, imagine if everyone one of Door County’s two million visitors took even just one. Before you know it, all the magnificent blooms would be gone. Save the memory by taking a picture instead.
#3. Avoid introducing invasive species: Much like wildflowers, many invasive plant species will begin to appear in the spring. Help prevent species such as wild parsnip, garlic mustard, and spotted knapweed from spreading by cleaning your shoes and bike tires before and after every outing.
