Bloomin’ Walks #2: Rhododendron

Dr. Doris Goldman will lead a family walk through Birely Trail at Happel’s Meadow in Blue Ridge Summit to observe and learn about blooming rosebay or great rhododendron (Rhododendron maximum). The clusters of flowers are  each almost 2 inches wide, and are a hummingbird favorite. This walk is quite shady and mossy, and always cooler than in the valley or most of the drier areas in the mountains.

The walk is free, but pre-registration is required. Email the Institute at: [email protected]

The Naturalist Adventure Series is sponsored by Pam & Bruce Rowland.

Additional underwriting support is from The Institute’s Today’s Horizon Fund contributors: The Nora Roberts Foundation; The John R. Hershey Jr. and Anna L. Hershey Family Foundation; Alma W. Oyer; APX Enclosures, Inc.; the Carolyn Terry Eddy Family: Carolyn, with daughters Connie Fleagle & Kim Larkin, and an anonymous donor, in honor of the life and work of Eunice Statler.
