Sheridan - To celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Amsden Creek Wildlife Habitat Management Area, Game and Fish and the Bighorn Native Plant Society will offer a wildflower identification hike at the Amsden on Saturday, May 18.

The hike will begin at the north Amsden gate at 9:30 a.m. and will be led by members of the native plant society who will teach participants how to identify dozens of wildflowers and native plants. The hike is not strenuous and is appropriate for all ages.

In addition, Game and Fish personnel will give a short history of the area and how it was acquired and geoscientist Steve Stresky will join the hike to discuss the unique geology of the Amsden area and eastern flank of the Bighorns.

Participants are welcome to meet at the Amsden gate at 9:30 a.m. or meet in Sheridan at the Information Center on Fifth Street to carpool to the Amsden at 9 a.m. Please wear comfortable walking shoes and bring water, snacks or a picnic lunch and sunscreen or a rain jacket, depending on the day’s weather.
