Wildflower Whimsy returns

Written by 

A two-day event offering wildflower walks, a native plant auction, a guest speaker and cocktail reception will celebrate the coming of spring May 5-6 at the Highlands Biological Station.

Wildflower Whimsy will kick off at 5:30 p.m. Friday, May 5, with a guided tour of the Highlands Botanical Garden, a repository of more than 450 native species, with a reception featuring live music and wine to follow. The next day, three guided wildflower walks will be offered with a special focus on fire ecology, and participants will also have the chance to join a wildcrafting workshop. 

$75 for Highlands Biological Foundation members; $100 for nonmembers. All proceeds benefit the Foundation’s mission to foster research and education focused on the rich natural heritage of the Southern Appalachians.
