Spring’s First Wildflower: The Engine that Can
With Judy Barr

Skunk cabbages are the earliest wildflowers in the spring. But the flowers don’t look like flowers, and the leaves don’t look like leaves…

  • What do their flowers and leaves look like?
  • How does this weird plant burrow thru snow?
  • What is the rest of the life cycle of this amazing plant?
  • Where can you find them in Wellesley?

Note: If you love purple and green, you will love this plant!!!!

Designed for families and children of all ages.
