Spring Ephemeral Walk

Event Details

Spring Ephemerals are 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 intern 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! 

Plant species observed will be added to the Ridgefield Natural Resource Inventory.  For a map of Aldrich Park, click here
