Elusive Puttyroot Hike with DCP

The name puttyroot refers to the sticky substance native Americans
once obtained from the tuber and used to mend their earthenware pots.
Join Darke County Parks for their spring hiking series as they explore the sensations of spring. On Tuesday, May 17th at 6pm join a naturalist at Eidson Woods Preserve on the corner of State Route 502 West and Palestine-Union City Road to search for the Puttyroot orchid. It is the only wild blooming orchid in Darke County, and hopefully the hike will coincide with its bloom. Who knows what the season’s weather will bring, so keep the conditions in mind when you dress for the hike.

For more information about this or any of the other exciting hikes in this season’s series or other Park District programs, please call the Nature Center at (937) 548-0165.
