Spring plants – In their natural habitat (British Columbia)

Outing in the mixed forest of British Columbia !

Let’s explore our nature! We’ll take a walk with our budding botanists to observe in British Columbia spring flowers, including the bloodroot (used by First Nations as makeup) and discover the very distinctive smell (which attracts flies) of the red trillium. The use of a small observation guide will further enrich our exploration. Keep going! Breathe in that fresh air!
