Spring Wildflower and Fern Walk

with Alice Schori

Saturday, May 20, 2023

10:00 am – Noon

Are you eager to get to know your neighbors – that is, your neighbors in the plant kingdom? Would you like to hone your plant identification skills while watching the approach of spring? Join botanist Alice Schori for a Spring Wildflower and Fern Walk on Shaker land. Exploring a variety of plant communities, become familiar with some of the common ferns and spring flowers of the Upper Valley. Some discussion of phenology (the study of how living things time natural events) and recognition of invasive, non-native species will be included.

The walk will be mostly on easy terrain, but will include some moderate hills and maybe a bit of bushwhacking. But never fear—Alice always proceeds at a botanist’s pace (=slow!). Dress for walking and tick protection, picture taking is welcome and encouraged!

Limited to 15 participants. Advance registration required.

Museum Members – Free

Non-Members – Free with Regular Museum Admission
