Earth Day Event! Spring Ephemeral Walk at Aldrich Park

Celebrate Earth Day with Spring Ephemerals, some of the earliest flowers to bloom in the Northeast. These woodland wildflowers take advantage of the full sun before the trees develop leaves and shade the forest floor. They bloom and set seed in only a few weeks before going dormant till next spring. Join NYBG-trained gardener and Master Gardener Cathy Smith as we look for these delicate plants and learn about their life cycles. Some ephemerals and other early bloomers we may see include Trillium, Dutchman’s Breeches, Trout Lily, Spring Beauty, Bloodroot and more!

This program is in partnership with the Ridgefield Conservation Commission and Woodcock Nature Center. Plant species observed will be added to the Ridgefield Natural Resource Inventory.

This event is free. Registration required.
