Kinghurst Nature Reserve East Parking lot Elmwood N0G 1S0

Spring ephemerals – plants that bloom briefly in spring, before the trees leaf out, are one of southern Ontario’s loveliest aspects. The mature hardwood forest at the Kinghurst Nature Re- serve is carpeted with a rich variety of these flowers in May and early June. Come join us and learn their names and some of their interesting characteristics. Then you will be able to find some of them in whatever patch of woodland you happen to hike through in spring.
