Spring Ephemerals Walk
Join us for a Spring Ephemerals Walk in Glen Providence Park! We’ll look for ephemeral (short-lasting) flowers, buds, and other signs of Spring. There is already Skunk Cabbage in bloom, and perhaps we’ll find some of the lovely Trout Lily emerging! And we can always look for four-leaf clovers for St. Patrick’s Day…
This ephemerals walk will be led by Marcia Tate, a photographer and garden coach specializing in native plants and environmentally friendly gardening. She both teaches at, and has certificates from, Longwood Gardens, and is a member of the Garden Writers Association. A life-long gardener, Marcia believes that it is possible to grow beautiful gardens where people, plants and wildlife thrive together in a healthy setting.
Rain date: Sunday, March 18
Meet at the park’s main entrance on State Street
Estimated distance: 1-1.5 miles
Estimated time: 1.5 hours
Be prepared for steep hills, and uneven (possibly muddy) terrain: wear your hiking shoes, bring a hiking pole if you use one, and you never know when you’ll want binoculars!
