Nature walk and wildflower identification in Steedman Woods with Bri Fischella

About a 15 min walk from the York Harbor Inn is the Wiggly Bridge that leads to Steedman Woods. If we get lucky we will be able to see some of the earliest blooming spring ephemerals (think violets, trillium, trout lily, jack in the pulpit, etc). Might be a nice way to stretch our legs, clear our head with some forest bathing, and enjoy some of this beautiful spring. Bri is a fervent wildflower lover and botanist and is delighted to lead this excursion. Bri worked as an environmental educator for Camp Ketcha in Scarborough, Maine doing this type of work with children and currently works at Great Bay NERR helping to lead vegetation surveys. So, plants are definitely some of her favorite things! Photo credit: Wiggly Bridge Panorama by Andy Gregorowicz, link, (CC BY-SA 2.0).Wiggly Bridge Panorama
