Spring Ephemerals Walk

Early blooming wildflowers pop up from their winter slumber once the snow and cold retreat from the woods. Their presence is fleeting since these plants only bloom, undergo pollination, and produce seed in the brief period when sunlight reaches the forest floor before trees leaf out. In this part of the Northeast, we may expect to find up to a dozen species of colorful, delicate-looking, yet hardy, beauties.

Enjoy this spring walk with Museum Educator Allison Gergely.
