Gahagan Preserve has three areas dedicated to wildflower plantings. This is addition to the 60-acres of forest undergrowth with wildflowers that come naturally.
The three areas of plantings are at the Maplehurst parking lot , the butterfly garden installed in front of the cabin and the septic/drain field area behind the cabin. The later area was seeded two years ago by Tom Zeneberg using the wildflower seed packets offered by the Crawford-Roscommon Conservation District. This year the flowers have become well established.
