Emerging Spring Wildflowers at Grandfather Mountain

As part of the North Carolina Science Festival, Citizen Science volunteers can join Ranger Appling in documenting emerging spring wildflowers to add to our bloom calendar. By maintaining this database we can help predict bloom dates, show trends and better understand what effects lead to plant emergence and blooming.

This program will be in conjunction with the Wildflower Walk at 4:00PM.
