Flora-Quest 2011 took place the weekend of April 29th-May 1st. Such a wonderful time with lots of good finds of plants and animals. I led a hike with John Howard called Streamside Discovery. We focused on some of the flora and fauna one might find along the streams in Scioto County. The following pics are of a few of the flowers we discovered. In a future post, I will cover some of the animals.
Pinkster Azalea, Rhododendron nudiflorum
Whorled Pogonia Orchid, Isotria verticillata
Large Yellow Lady's-slipper, Cypripedium parviflorum var. pubescens
