Discover Springtime Beauty at Goll Woods State Nature Preserve

Posted on 4/21/2015 by State Nature Preserves

Discover the beauty of a northwestern Ohio forest in spring by joining a free wildflower walk at Goll Woods State Nature Preserve this Saturday at 11 a.m.

Sponsored by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources’ Division of Natural Areas and Preserves, this naturalist-led guided walk will focus on native wildflowers, such as large flowered trillium, our state wildflower, bloodroot, columbine, marsh marigold and a host of other colorful wildflowers. Participants should wear appropriate foot attire as trail conditions can be muddy.


Goll Woods SNP


Goll Woods is home to more than 40 species of ephemeral spring wildflowers. During the few weeks of early spring, woodland wildflowers must emerge, produce flowers and then set seed, all before they become shaded out by the forest’s dense summer canopy


Goll Woods SNP


Spanning 321 acres, and preserving nearly 100 acres of virgin forest, Goll Woods was designated a registered natural landmark by the US Department of the Interior in 1975.
