A series of guided walks to see mountain wildflowers got started this week at Spooner Lake State Park, on Lake Tahoe’s East Shore.

The two-hour walks around Spooner Lake 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. 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 to the park 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. It is recommended that walkers wear comfortable clothes, walking shoes or boots and a sun hat. Walkers should bring water, snacks, sun screen and insect repellent.
