Wildflower talk at Mount Independence on tap for April 30

ORWELL — Search for the tender beauties of spring wildflowers in a guided walk at the Mount Independence State Historic Site in Orwell, Vermont, on Sunday, April 30, from 1-3 p.m. Amy Olmsted, a horticulturist with Rocky Dale Gardens in Bristol and a nursery professional for over 20 years, leads this informative walk.
Olmsted will show participants where and how to look for early wildflowers, will identify the flowers you see, present their common and Latin names, and discuss their habitat. Wear sturdy shoes, dress for the weather, and bring water if you like. This special event brings you to Mt. Independence Historic Site before the official opening on Saturday, May 27.
The program, co-sponsored by the Mount Independence Coalition and Vermont Division for Historic Preservation, is open to the public. Admission is $5 for adults and free for children under 15. Meet by 1 p.m. outside the Museum. Call 802-759-2412 for more information.
