Subject: Spring Wildflowers, Ephemeral Beauty With a Purpose

Speaker: Carol Gracie

Although the beauty of local wildflowers enhances our enjoyment of spring, a look behind their pretty faces reveals the important roles that they play in the ecology of our eastern forest environment. Come meet acclaimed naturalist Carol Gracie, former NYBG teacher, as she explains how wildflowers have adapted to their shaded environment, their role as an important food resource for early emerging insects, their methods of dispersal, and some of their uses by humans as medicines, foods, and dyes.
