Sow some wild seeds on Beech Fork State Park’s Overlook Trail April 21

BARBOURSVILLE, W.Va. —Nature enthusiasts are invited to help sow wildflower seeds at Beech Fork State Park on Saturday, April 21 during a hike on the Overlook Trail with Master Naturalist Fred Tackett.

The hike, which is part of the park’s planned wildflower meadows enhancement plan, will start at the trailhead at 1 p.m. The Overlook Trail leads to a pleasing overlook of the park headquarters and recreation area. During the hike, Tackett will tell stories about the area and talk about wildflower species that grow in the area and the insects they support. The hike will last about an hour.
