Plant Pursuit: First Life of Spring

April 17 @ 5:30 PM - 6:30 PM


Take a guided hike of Dead Man’s Hollow Conservation area as we look for the early plants of spring. Did you know the tiny, seed-filled leaves you see sprouting up in early spring are called “cotyledons”? A large part of learning plant identification is visiting each plant throughout the growing season to note their changing characteristics through time. Learn much more as we explore the habitats of this unique green space.

We feel fortunate to have this hike posted by our partner Jen Dalke of Blue Heron Nature Skills. Wear good hiking shoes and bring a camera and your favorite field guide if you have them. Program runs for 1 hours, rain or shine.
