About the Event

By late summer, the forest canopy has filled out. While saplings like  sassafras compete for light and nutrients, the understory community of  wild ginger, partridgeberry, black and blue cohosh, and wild cucumber  continues to thrive.

At this time of year, sunny open fields might be speckled with bright  orange butterfly weed. Joe-Pye-Weed and sumac stand tall along roadsides, and sometimes you can find native bitter herbs like  turtlehead growing along the creek with drooping clusters of ripe elderberries nearby.
