On this tour Glenda Berman will share her expansive knowledge of native and invasive plants interspersed with folklore stories about spring ephemerals. While walking through swamps and woodlands on Art Omi’s grounds, Berman will identify native spring ephemerals—including trillium, bloodroot, hepatica, trout lily, skunk cabbage, jack-in-the-pulpit and ramps—along with invasive plants which threaten spring ephemerals, such as invasive honeysuckle and garlic mustard. Berman will discuss how to properly identify and remove these invasive plants in order to protect native species.   Glenda Berman is a Cornell Cooperative Extension Master Gardener and holds a BA in Environmental Science from SUNY Purchase.
