Wildflower Appreciation Day 2006

More than 50 people participated in walks and scavenger hunts at Wildflower Appreciation Day, including Ithaca’s Director of Planning and Development Thys VanCort and Common Council member Mary Tomlan. Friends of Six Mile Creek and the City of Ithaca Natural Areas Commission sponsored the events highlighting the human and natural history of the area and pointing out the threats posed to wildflowers from invasive species.

A young participant in the Plant Scavenger Hunt double checks his list. These native violets are nearly surrounded by invasive garlic mustard.
