Join us for a Trustees Trek, to search for the awesome, vivid colors of spring wildflowers at Farandnear!
Many of New England’s wildflowers are called “Vernal Wildflowers” meaning they are short-lived. Their blossoms are timed to take advantage of the brilliant rays of the direct sunlight hitting the forest floor, well before trees leaf out, providing an important source of pollen for early insects in the forest. We recommend you come prepared with sturdy boots and insect/tick protection.
This program will be offered outdoors in light rain. In the event of heavy rain, it will be relocated to an indoor space at Fruitlands Museum in nearby Harvard for hands-on activities and crafts.
Please note that space is limited and pre-registration required.
