Description

Celebrate warmer days by joining us for a walk in the woods searching for spring wildflowers on 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.

On April 27th, the Headwaters Master Naturalists will host several wildflower walks on Shenandoah Mountain, in the George Washington National Forest. Choose from several trails that vary in difficulty and habitat. All of the walks will be led by a Master Naturalist and accompanied by wildflower experts familiar with the trails and flowers.

Also, bring your smart phone so you can capture the fleeting beauty and create observations to record what we see.

Three walks are offered this year:

9:30 am - 12:00 pm: North River Gorge

9:30 am - 12:00 pm: North River Campground Area

9:30 am - 1:30 pm: Hone Quarry

1:00 pm - 3:30 pm: North River Campground Area
