Bluebells and Budbreak at Boundary Bridge (Nature Forward)

April 12 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm EDT

Leader: Melanie Choukas-Bradley
We’re delighted that the author of the award-winning book A Year in Rock Creek Park, and the critically acclaimed City of Trees, will offer her 18th year of Nature Forward walks in the country’s oldest urban national park. Under her expert guidance, you will witness the annual floral miracle of Virginia bluebells in the floodplain forest, while the leaves of the tulip tree and American beech begin to spill from their buds. We’ll hope to catch spring beauties, wild ginger, cut-leafed toothwort, and other blooming spring ephemerals as we explore both floodplain and upland woods at a leisurely pace. Time permitting, we’ll do a bit of “forest bathing.” Throughout, we’ll keep our eyes and ears open for belted kingfishers, wood ducks, migrant songbirds, and tiny spring peeper frogs. Expect some uphill/downhill on natural surface trails which may be muddy and/or slippery. Please note: There are no restrooms at our meeting place or along the route.

Register Here.
