Spring Ephemerals Are Here to Enjoy!

Spring has arrived early this year, and the ephemerals are out (showing off)!

So far, Denis has seen Hepaticas, Carolina Spring Beauty, and Dutchman’s Breeches in bloom. Yellow Trout Lilies, Trilliums, and others are sprouting all over and will soon be blooming!

Remember, it’s a short season for the ephemerals, so this is the time to get out and enjoy the show. Don’t forget to bring your cell phone or camera to capture their beauty. The photos can be posted to MVFN’s Biodiversity in Lanark project on iNaturalist either in the field from your cell phone or once you get home with either your cell phone or camera.

Remember you don’t have to be an expert. iNaturalist will make suggestions. If you need help getting started check out the instructions on our website. Or, complete this form if you are interested in an zoom tutorial.
