Award-winning environmental consultant, writer, artist, photographer and naturalist, Bob Bowles will lead us in our discovery of rare and unique Alvar flora at its peak during the month of May and June. Prairie Smoke (Geum triflorum), Painted Cup (Castilleja coccinea) and Balsam Ragwort (Packera paupercula) are just a few to mention among the more than 400 plants that flourish on Alvars.
Join us here at the Nature Centre on June 17th, 2023 to learn about the uniqueness of Alvars and the species at risk that make alvars their home. We’ll then take a short drive to a trailhead at the Carden Alvar to see and experience a dazzling display of rare Alvar flora.
