Knowing Native Plants: Spring Ephemerals

Spring wildflowers such as Dutchman’s breeches, bloodroot, bluebell, spring beauty, twinleaf and several species of trillium color the forest floor for a fleeting moment this time of year. Join Naturalist Mary Anne Borge to learn why these wildflowers are called spring ephemerals, how their life cycles work and how their seeds are dispersed. Our indoor presentation and discussion will be followed by an outdoor tour. Advance registration is recommended. Professional CEUs are available.
