Who doesn’t love that first flush of wildflowers in the spring woods?
The color and beauty are a balm after a long winter, an invitation to wander into the forest and see what is happening there. Many insects—flies, bees, and even some early butterflies–are ready, too, looking for nectar and pollen in the emerging flowers. And as the seeds of these plants mature, an amazing array of dispersal strategies comes into play. Join us to explore the fascinating world of woodland flowers and their visitors.
