Learn more about the wildflowers of the Blue Ridge at an upcoming symposium May 17-19 at the Nature Foundation at Wintergreen.

Wintergreen’s Spring Wildflower Symposium offers guests and symposium attendees a close-up look at the best and most diverse coverage of wildflowers and mountain ecosystems.

The symposium will feature wildflower walks, native landscaping ideas, art classes and natural history lectures with the country’s leading experts in their field.

“There’s no way you could come away from this event without learning more about botany, ecology, entomology, geology and ornithology while taking in the beauty of the Blue Ridge,” said Doug Coleman, the Nature Foundation at Wintergreen’s executive director.

Wintergreen’s unique setting features more than 30 miles of hiking trails and convenient access to diverse geological sites.
