Hundreds of folks visit Ijams Nature Center every summer asking about the sunflower fields. Although the fields are not on Ijams property, we are happy to point people in the right direction! The sunflowers are actually planted by TWRA at the Forks of the River WMA, a property located just down the greenway from Ijams.

****update July 21, 2017 *** we’re sorry to say that they are past their prime! Our visitors let us know that they are wilted. Please visit again next early July!
