Please join the Headwaters Master Naturalists and our collaborators,
for Spring Wildflower Walks and Diversity Dash on Saturday, April 25, 2015.
After a long winter, what better way to celebrate warmer days than to hit the trails in search of spring wild flowers. And really there is no better place to start your search than the trails of Shenandoah Mountain. Have you ever seen the fringe on the fringed polygala? Smelled the foul flower of wild ginger? Admired the slim stalks and blue beauty of the bluets? These are just a few of the wildflowers you might encounter on the naturalist-led walks hosted by the Headwaters Chapter of the Master Naturalists.
Come out and see the spring wildflowers on Shenandoah Mountain in the George Washington and Jefferson National Forests!
Bring your camera so you can capture the fleeting beauty for our Diversity Dash. Which trail shows the most diversity and unique plants? What image can you capture that best represents the diverse and unique habitats of Shenandoah Mountain? No prizes, but all photos will be displayed on the Headwaters Master Naturalist photo website. And don’t worry, no need to run to participate in the Diversity Dash! Just bring your enthusiasm for finding as many wildflowers as you can in a short amount of time!
Sign up is now closed for the Wildflower Walks 2015. Stayed tuned for next year’s event!
