Forest Flowers Woods Walk

May 18 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm


forest flowersEarly May, before the trees cast a deep shadow under their canopies, understory plants are able to soak in the sun’s rays and show off their flowers. Dutchman’s breeches, spring beauties, trout lilies, and trilliums are just a few of the flowers that carpet the Catskill forest floor in the early spring. Take a walk with CFA and Forest Historian Dr. Michael Kudish to learn more about these spring ephemerals.

We would like to thank Dr. Michael Kudish for helping make this event happen.

Members: Free | Non-members: $10
