A series of guided walks to see mountain wildflowers starts 10 a.m. June 4 at Spooner Lake State Park.

The two-hour walks around Spooner Lake will feature more than 100 species of wildflowers, and are led by a park ranger.

Walkers will have an opportunity to learn plant names, their uses and habitats.

The four walks are Wednesdays and Saturdays, starting at 10 a.m. In addition to June 4, walks are June 7, June 18 and June 21.

Spooner Lake is located at the junction of highways 28 and 50 in northwest Douglas County.

The event is open to the public. Entry fees are waived for those attending the walks. Nevada residents wishing to remain in the park are $8 per vehicle. Out of state residents are $10.

The wildflower walk is over the first mile only, and is never more than 30 minutes from the trail head. Children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult. Pets aren’t recommended. What is recommended is that walkers wear comfortable clothes, walking shoes or boots and a sun hat. Walkers should bring water, snacks, sun screen and insect repellent.
