The Parks Mill Spider Lily Preserve is a rare gem where the wonders of nature meet historical significance. In addition to being a refuge for the stunning Rocky Shoals Spider Lilies, the preserve is home to a beautifully preserved water-powered grist mill. This mill is not only a testament to the ingenuity of the past but is also actively being restored, allowing visitors to witness the progress of conservation in action.

Save the date and prepare to be inspired by the legacy of conservation and history at Parks Mill. Stay tuned for more information and consider joining us on a field trip in May.
