Spring flowers are blooming. Join wildflower expert Marijke Gate as we stroll along the towpath and explore the banks of the canal and river in search of Spring beauties, Virginia bluebells, Dutchman’s breeches and other common and unusual spring wildflowers. Learn how these plants interact with other organisms to form a wonderful and complex ecosystem.
