Spring Walk Series: Native Flowering Plants
Meet at Perkins Visitor Center
Registration encouraged; Free with admission to groundsRegister
Many woodland wildflowers, or “spring ephemerals,” take advantage of the sunlight to bloom before trees leaf out in the spring. Join Senior Horticultural Interpreter Jess Brey as she draws your attention to these hidden gems cultivated and naturalized in Wave Hill's gardens and woodlands. Severe weather cancels. This walk also takes place at 2PM. Presented in collaboration with NYC Wildflower Week.
Advance registration encouraged, online via the link above. Day-of registration is based on availability and not guaranteed. Program size is limited.
Walks follow a route along mixed-material pathways with varying elevations.
