Guided Walk: Late Spring’s Glorious Forest Understory Plants

April 13 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Join Tree Steward guide and property owner Phil Stokes for this spring walk in a pristine remarkably diverse 30-acre mature woodland as trees, wildflowers, and ferns announce spring’s arrival.

See the wonders of many naturally occurring ephemeral blooming wildflowers such as wild geranium, star flowered chickweed, toothwort, rue anemone, and a variety of ferns on this easy 1 ½ mile walk along trails. In addition we’ll visit restored woodland understories thriving with planted trilliums, Jacob’s ladder, trout lily, Mayapple, Virginia bluebells, and various other wildflowers. Pinxter bloom azaleas indigenous to the site should also be in bloom as well as serviceberry, maple, and paw paw.

Once emerging tree foliage fully leafs out, this short season of abundant showy wildflowers comes to an end until next spring. Located in western Albemarle County, it’s an easy and scenic drive of less than 30 min. from Charlottesville on mostly interstate and Route 250. Directions will be sent after registration is complete. Limited to 15 people.  No restrooms available.

Please register on Eventbrite here.  Open to all!

This walk is free, but donations are always welcome. Thanks!
