How can close observation and documentation of plant characteristics help us understand their success in ecosystems? Join us as we look at all of the amazing and wonderful plants which are popping up all over Wolf Ridge. Most of these flowers can only be seen for a couple of weeks every spring so we have to find them before they disappear until next year!

For this Wolf Ridge Adventures in Learning lesson, you will…

  • Join naturalists Caroline and Robby to explore spring plants at Wolf Ridge through an online StoryMap lesson and video, or by reading a printed story about their adventure.
  • Gain an understanding of flowering plants and how their shapes, colors, etc. help them reproduce.
  • Follow a plant in your neighborhood or yard as it grows and changes.
  • Make observations of flowering plants in your area and create nature journal entries for a few of them, documenting their features and labeling their parts.
