About the event

What’s Up On the Bluff? Birds and Blooms on Powers Bluff  Back by popular demand, we are once again going to see "what is up on the bluff" with Bob! 

Powers Bluff is a prominent high hill about two miles southwest of Arpin in Wood County. Part of the bluff is in a county park, and about 80 acres of the park have been designated as a State Natural Area. The Natural Area includes one of the best examples of a sugar maple woods free of alien invasive species left in Wisconsin. The understory flora in May is spectacular. It is an almost unbroken carpet of trilliums, spring beauty, trout lilies, bellworts, Dutchman's breeches, and many other species.

For our field trip to Powers Bluff on Saturday, May 6, meet in the public parking lot on the east side of the Wisconsin River north of the Clark Street bridge and the Chase Bank  at 8:00 AM to car pool, or meet the group at the parking lot near the shelter building at Powers Bluff at 9:00. Bluff Drive, the road to the Park, is one mile south of county highway N, and runs between county highways E and T. We expect to complete the field trip at Powers Bluff around noon.
