John Homer also shares that the Tower Park trails are rugged so he encourages attendees to wear proper footwear and to dress for the weather of the day. Though hilly, the trails are not long and there will be multiple stops to discuss what folks see.
You can preview some of the flowers on the tour on the Fort Thomas app (available for free on iTunes and Google Play). An outstanding photographer, Homer provided the photos and descriptions of some of the wildflowers in Tower Park, but you need to hear his narrative in person about the flowers.

Participants are encouraged to enjoy the beauty but leave the plants alone. It is still a delicate ecosystem and people should admire the beauty in its natural habitat.
