June 22, 2019

Have you ever taken a hike at Willow River or Kinnickinnic State Park and stumbled across a beautiful wildflower or strange plant and wondered what it was? Or maybe you finished a hike through the prairie or along the river only to find you have obtained a nasty itch, burn or blister on your skin? Here at Willow River State Park, we have a variety of beautiful wild flowers. We also have a lot of poisonous and invasive plants to watch out for as well!
