The Museum in the Park at Chief Logan State Park will host the annual Sue Browning Wildflower Hike at 9 a.m. April 20. The event, sponsored by Chief Logan State Park, the Hemlock Hills Garden Club and the Museum in the Park, is named for a long-time member of the Logan Garden Club who helped establish the hike 30 years ago.

West Virginia Division of Natural Resources personnel and knowledgeable wildflower enthusiasts will
guide groups of registered hikers along a few of the park's 14 trails to see and photograph native flora and fauna. Each trail features a unique combination of scenery and wildflowers. Chief Logan State Park Superintendent Bruce Collinsworth promises a variety of paths for hikers to choose from, depending upon their experience and endurance level.

Hikers will meet at the Museum in the Park at 9 a.m. for registration and complimentary coffee and
pastries. Groups will get organized and leave between 9:30 and 10 a.m. Hikers will be served a box lunch at the Museum in the Park following the hike.

Registration forms are available at the Chief Logan State Park office, by calling Museum in the Park at 304-792-7229, emailing Elizabeth.A.Williams@wv.gov, calling Patsy Tilley of the Hemlock Hills Garden Club at 304-583-2026, or emailing her at patsynted@suddenlink.net.

Registration is $15 per adult and $11 per child, and lunch is not guaranteed.
