Shenandoah National Park Wildflower Weekend
Saturday, May 7, 2016 - Sunday, May 8, 2016
Take a day or two to appreciate the diversity of wildflowers growing here in the Blue Ridge. More than 1,300 species of plants thrive in Shenandoah National Park, a mountain island surrounded by farmland, towns, and expanding developed areas. The park is a haven for native woodland wildflowers. For more information about Shenadoah’s wildflowers click here.
Take time to observe. See how flowers rely on butterflies, bees, birds and other animals to pollinate them and spread their seeds. Watch the daily battles taking place over a plant’s resources.
Contemplate a wildflower and you might discover your own connections to the natural world.
Wildflower Weekend activities are free with your park admission. No pre-registration is necessary.
