SINKHOLE PONDS AND ORCHIDS
April 22 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 amFree
Come join Meegan Wallace on Sunday, April 22nd, at 10:00 a.m. to look for orchids and other native wildflowers at Grafton Ponds. These ponds are Virginia’s best remaining example of a coastal plain pond complex. During this 2 mile round trip walk, you’ll see showy orchids (Galearis spectabilis) in bloom as well as many other spring wildflowers and ferns. From I-64, travel east on Fort Eustis Blvd (Va-105), pass Richneck Road on the right, and look for a small parking area on the left, marked with VNPS signs. Contact Meegan at firstname.lastname@example.org to register and for more information. This event is sponsored by the John Clayton Chapter of the Virginia Native Plant Society and is free and open to the public!
