Spring Wildflowers on MCHT Preserves

While visiting MCHT preserves in the early spring, MCHT land steward Amanda Devine keeps an eye out for Maine’s first flowers, known as “spring ephemerals” because they don’t last long. They reproduce by taking advantage of the sunlight that reaches the forest floor before trees leaf out. Cool, huh? Find a preserve near you and enjoy the sight of these sweet blooms!
