Program Details

Annette MaCoy, Extension Educator
Each spring in the eastern United States, for a few short weeks, beauty blankets the floor of our deciduous woodlands – the native wildflowers known as spring ephemerals. Spring wildflowers, besides providing us humans with much-needed early spring color, also serve as an important food source for insects emerging after a long winter. Their flowers provide pollen and nectar for beetles, flies, and bumblebees.

Door Prizes

Door prizes will be given at each workshop. At each workshop, you may enter the drawing to win the grand door prize, a Penn State Extension Master Gardener Manual (valued at $75.00), to be awarded at the last workshop of the season on October 24.
