The Bloomingdale Trail, the city's newest nature walk in Logan Square will be the topic of the May 4 meeting of the Wild Flower Preservation Society, 1:15 p.m. at the Lincoln Park Cultural Center, 2045 N. Lincoln Park West.

Paul Smith,the director of Friends of the Bloomingdale Trail will talk about the trail which runs from Ridgeway (3800N) to Ashland (1600W) at Bloomingdale (1800N) along the Chicago, Milwaukee, Southern Pacific railroad right-of-way. The trail is a joint project of Friends of the Parks and the Chicagoland Bicycle Federation and is an example of the national program of Rails to Trails that promotes nature trails along old railroad right-of-ways.

Guests are welcome and there is no charge. The 94-year-old Wild Flower Preservation Society meets before the program for a Dutch-treat lunch at the Original Pancake House, 2020 N. Lincoln Park West and guests are welcome to join us and the speaker. Friends of the Bloomingdale Trail will sponsor a walk along the trail on Saturday, June 24 and all are welcome to attend that also.
