Additional Information: Instructed by:
The onset of spring brings beautiful wildflowers to the woodlands of Missouri, especially a rich variety of common and rare spring ephemeral wildflowers. They are called "ephemeral" because the flowers typically occur for a few short weeks in the spring before disappearing for the rest of the year. These plants deploy an amazing array of strategies to deal with the challenges of living on the forest floor. This talk, by Chris Benda, the Illinois Botanizer, will cure your winter blues by discussing the myriad adaptations by these interesting plants. Native Plant Seminar programs are open for anyone to watch but are prepared with adult gardeners and landowners in mind. Pre-ordered plants may be picked up at the nature center on Saturday, March 13 between 10:00 am and 1:00 pm. COVID precautions preclude any browsing or shopping on site. There will be no other vendors. Pre-ordered plants will be placed in your vehicle in the line at the front of the nature center. Laci Prucinsky
