Last year we identified and discussed the woodland wildflowers that bloom in the summer with Dan Childs. This year we explore the many beautiful spring ephemerals in this virtual woodland tour. This will be a good refresher for those wildflower seekers as you plan that first spring hike in the woods.
Dan Childs received a Master of Science degree in Botany and Plant Pathology from Purdue University in 1987. He has worked in both academia and industry as a weed scientist and agronomist for 37 years, retiring in 2020. He is a wildflower enthusiast and is the author of two wildflower identification field guides, Back Roads and Into the Woods.
In this presentation, Dan takes us on a virtual hike through Indiana’s woodlands to seek out spring wildflowers and learn about their identifying traits.
