”Spring Wildflowers” With Carol Gracie
The Master Gardeners of Bergen and Passaic County welcome, Carol Gracie to a joint education program: “Spring Wildflowers of the North East”.
The wildflowers that brighten our woodlands in spring are more than just a delight for the eye and a lift for the winter-weary spirit. Each has a role in the environment. Come and learn about the fascinating life histories of some favorite spring wildflowers.
