Spring Ephemeral Wildflowers and Mushrooms
May 11, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Calling all plant and mushroom lovers! If you or your family would love to walk in beautiful woods and discover the riches of spring beneath your feet, this walk is for you!
Join master naturalist Dr. Rick Van de Poll for a tour of a rich and diverse woodland in the upper Connecticut Valley region.
Witness the delicate colors and fragility of rare plants, learn about the bedrock and soils that help create this rich mesic forest, and discover the fascinating world of spring fungi that attends the coming of warm weather.
We hope to find squirrel corn, maidenhair fern, blue cohosh, jack-in-the-pulpit and some fungi (morels, false morels, cup fungi, early polypores).
