Cedar Bog naturalists invite everyone to learn about and see Ohio’s earliest blooming wildflower, the Skunk Cabbage, during a 2 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 23, program at the nature preserve. Following a short presentation in the Nature Center, guides and visitors will walk on the boardwalk to find the Skunk Cabbage. You never know what else may be found.

The length of the walk will depend on the weather and the condition of the boardwalk. Visitors are advised to dress for the weather and the conditions of the day.

The Cedar Bog Nature Preserve is located at 980 Woodburn Road, south of Urbana. The cost is $5 per person. Ohio History Connection and Cedar Bog Association members will be admitted free of charge. For more info, call 937-484-3744.
