Join Ecologist Liz Thompson for a virtual spring wildflower walk, richly illustrated with beautiful photos. We’ll look at showy ground-dwelling flowers like bloodroot, hepatica, and spring beauty, then move off the ground to explore flowering shrubs like leatherwood, shadbush, and rhodora. Then we’ll look at a few tree flowers, way up in the forest canopy. We’ll talk about the plants and their relationships to each other and to their soils, and touch a bit on pollinators, dispersal strategies, and human uses of some of the plants. All the plants will be named, and we’ll share a few good places to go wildflower watching.
