There’s no better time for a walk in the woods than springtime when the ephemerals are in bloom. These first-of-the-year plants, like Dutchman’ breeches and dogtooth violet, surge out of the ground before the trees leaf out, taking advantage of the sunlight reaching the forest floor. Then in just a few short weeks, these early blooms disappear, and many of the plants retreat into their roots.

Nancy Leonard will lead this walk at starting at Esrey Park, a roadside park north of Eagle Harbor on M-26. A naturalist in love with the Keweenaw, she enjoys sharing her reverence for that natural world, and we are the grateful beneficiaries of her largesse.
