Hand in SoilAdam Bigelow. The forest floor comes alive in the springtime, with Flowers!

Have fun learning about the Spring Wildflowers of Southern Appalachia with Adam Bigelow.  We will discuss identifying wildflowers using ID Guides and keys, hear the stories of the plants; their many names, benefits, uses; and their relationship to each other, the forest, and to us. And, there will be many beautiful pictures of wildflowers
