Spring at Ijams

Birds are singing, frogs are croaking and flowers are blooming… it must be spring!

One of the most wonderful surprises on our trails are the spring wildflowers that peek through the last of the winter leaf litter. Bright little gems of color, speckled across the forest floor. Look for wildflowers on North Cove Trail, River Trail, and the Discovery Trails around the Ijams Homesite.
