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.
