Upcoming Events

Badger Barrens Exploration

Saturday, May 22, 2021 at 10AM

Mid-May is the peak of the lupine blooms and a prime time to visit Badger Barrens!

Join us as we also explore the recently acquired Headacres Farm, which has expanded Badger Barrens by 24 acres. We’ll witness the work that has already begun to transform this area into additional habitat for wild blue lupine, and we’ll discuss the plan for restoration and future use.

From Fremont, head east on SR 120 to CR 925 E. Turn left onto CR 925 E, and take that to Ln 100 Lake Anne. Turn left and follow the lane to the parking area. You can click here to view it on a map and get directions.
