Spring Wildflowers Experience

May 4 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

Each of our glorious spring ephemerals—native plants that appear and bloom only for a short time in the spring—has a story to tell. In early May, there is a veritable chorus of plant “voices” to be discovered in our forests and fields. But you have to get out there before they disappear for another year!

Join us Saturday, May 4, 9:00-11:00am, for a spring wildflower experience with botanist Peter Curtis at Kestrel Land Trust’s Elizabeth Huntington Dyer Field & Forest in Hadley. Following the trail out-and-back, we will stroll along a wooded stream absorbing the phenomenon of “budburst” that occurs here in the Connecticut River Valley. Peter will share his knowledge of the plants (and some of the animals) that make their presence known this time of year.

Peter Curtis is Professor Emeritus of plant ecology at the Ohio State University, a Kestrel Land Trust board member, and resident of Northampton. He has published widely in the area of plant and ecosystem responses to climate change and taught courses in botany, ecology, ethnobotany, and climate change biology.

Registration is required. Sliding scale donation welcome.
