Spring is a magical time of year when the forest floor comes to life with colorful and complex wildflowers. Join Amy Mawby for an ecological exploration of the season with a focus on its harbingers, our native spring ephemerals. Go on a photographic journey of our most fleeting flowers while discovering cultural information and fun facts. Combat 'plant blindness' by learning identification tips to help you get outside and enjoy the spring ephemerals in your home garden, neighborhood and local natural areas.
