The Shelby Black Fork Wetlands, is a hidden treasure, with a stunning wildflower display that has to be seen to believe. Carpets of Great White Trillium, Virginia Bluebells, and Wild Hyacinth festoon the forest floor, sharing the area with over 30 species of spring, ephemeral wildflowers. The property contains river oxbows, vernal pools, swamp forest, as well as drier upland habitats, and the Black Fork River. The plant and wildlife diversity, located in this natural history gem, is simply incredible.
