Blue-eyed Mary, Trillium, Ginseng and Fungus are some of the things shown here to photograph at Dowagiac Woods.  TCCC member Don VanderMolen is focused in on a Trillium as his photo is taken by Ken McKeown.  Dowagiac Woods Nature Preserve is in Cass County and is a little over 20 miles from downtown St. Joseph, it has fifty species of wildflowers, nearly fifty kinds of trees and at least forty-nine kinds of birds nest there.  Due to the seasonal nature of the plants, it's advisable to check several sources for the best time periods for each kind of plant.  These photos were taken in the first week of May 2007.

Check these websites for more information:  Dowagiac Chamber of Commerce, located in the nearest city and Harbor Country Park Guide, which has information on City County State and National Parks in Southwestern Michigan and Northern Indiana.          

Location:   Sink Road and Frost Street, Michigan

NOTE: The Mapping program will show you the intersection of Sink Road and Frost Street.  Go east on Frost Street about one mile to Dowagiac Woods Nature Preserve.
