Event Description:
The WSU Retiree Center’s Senior University program will host “Spring Wildflowers: Take a Walk on the Wild Side” from 2:00-4:00 p.m. Wednesdays, March 28th, April 11th, April 25th, May 9th and May 16th.

This course consists of field trips planned around some of our most charismatic wildflowers as spring unfolds in the Driftless Area. Participants will discover the diversity of spring wildflowers and will learn the relationship between habitat and plant communities. Students will discover how these plants have been used over the last 10, 000 years by Native Americans as well as by early settlers.

Note: Participants must be able to walk on uneven terrain unassisted, and provide their own transportation or arrange car pools with other registered participants in class for the course field trips. 

Judy Shepard has been an outdoor enthusiast all her life, but moving to the Driftless Area of MN in 1975 was a life-changing experience. She worked as a Seasonal Naturalist Assistant at Whitewater State Park and led programs and walks for school groups and public.

Cost to attend this course is $45, and registration is online at />
Senior University is open to all adult learners in the Winona community, not just WSU retirees. The program is a series of non-credit short courses that are peer-led by WSU faculty, retirees and community members. The goal is to provide intellectual and cultural stimulation and growth for lifelong learners. Courses cover current events, history, philosophy, science, art, poetry, wellness, nature, politics, literature and much more.
