As you walk east from the PGT center, you pass through open woods and look towards Beaver Lake, which is nestled in a field of prairie grasses and flowers. Beginning in spring, phlox and bloodroot bloom in the woods while you’ll find blue false indigo and butterfly weed in the prairie. In summer, masses of prairie blazing star color the field purple, while purple coneflowers bloom in the woods. Water lilies cover the lake. Bald cypress and their knobby “knees” edge the shore.
