Buffalo Mountain Wildflower Walk

April 28 @ 9:00 am - 3:30 pm

Pack a picnic lunch and join us for a leisurely hike (under 3 miles) on Buffalo Mountain as we search for wildflowers. Some rare plants we may see include: Gray’s lily, bog twayblade, mountain sandwort, and rattlesnake root, among others. We also expect to see the usual spring suspects: trilliums, lady slippers, Solomon’s seal, bloodroot, saxifrage, and many more.

About the hike leaders:

  • Snow Ferrenia studied at the Royal Botanical Gardens at Kew and eventually moved to the U.S. to work at Longwood Gardens in Pennsylvania, the New England Wildflower Society, and the New York Botanical Gardens, among others.
  • Carol Broderson monitors wildflowers and rare plants on the Appalachian Trail for the Mt. Rogers Appalachian Trail Club.
