Artist's Description

In the process of adopting a nature preserve and visited a gem in Marblehead. Ohio

Lakeside Daisy (Colleen “Casey” Taylor & Ruth E. Fiscus)
State Nature Preserve The only natural U.S. population of Lakeside daisy; also good summer prairie wildflowers.

Lakeside Daisy State Nature Preserve encompasses 19 acres of old limestone quarried land on the Marblehead Peninsula of Lake Erie in Ottawa County.

This preserve was established to protect the only natural United States population of the Lakeside daisy, a federally threatened plant species which only occurs naturally at a handful of sites. Also a state endangered species, this is one of Ohio’s most spectacular wildflowers.

In early to mid-May, its bright yellow flowers adorn the otherwise bleak, sun-baked landscape of the Marblehead quarry.
