End of June Bloomers

Wild Bergamot is blooming along the main path to Catch the Wild as well as at several other locations around the Explore the Wild/Catch the Wind loop. Black-eyed Susan is still the most abundant flower on the loop, but is beginning to fade.

Showy pink Hibiscus flower

Coming into bloom towards the end of this period, the big showy pink flowers of Hibiscus can be seen at the top of the boardwalk leading to Explore the Wild and along the path as you leave the Red Wolf Overlook headed for the Lemur House. You should have no trouble locating either plant (please don’t pick the flowers).

Blackberries are ripening at numerous places along the Explore the Wild/Catch the Wind loop, although it can be difficult to locate enough ripe berries to satisfy one’s appetite for them. Gray Catbirds usually get to them first!
