Bluebell hike planned at Lebline Woods Nature Preserve


Oak Heritage Conservancy invites the public to visit acres and acres of bluebells Wednesday in the Lebline Woods Nature Preserve near Rockford.

The 30-acre riverside forest has been home to bluebells since the 1800s, according to a news release from the conservancy.

Bluebells are a native wildflower that blooms in the preserve each spring. The wildflowers stretch as far as the eye can see at this riverside preserve, which is protected from development by the conservancy.

The hopes is to catch the bluebells in full bloom, but if not, hikers can look for other spring wildflowers.

There is no parking area at the preserve yet, so anyone interested can meet at 5:30 p.m. at Southern Indiana Center for the Arts, 2001 N. Ewing St., Seymour. The group will carpool and caravan to the preserve to save on parking space.

The hike is over flat terrain, but there is no trail on the property, so expect to hike over vines and around brush. Those planning to attend are encouraged to bring a water bottle, a camera and bug spray.
