Bloodroot Valley Walk—Join Sandra Mechanic, naturalist and photographer, at Manor Road side of Susan Wagner High School. Walk can be tricky; wear waterproof footgear even if it is not raining. Hundreds of Bloodroot plants line the stream hillsides. Bloodroot flowers from late March to mid-April. It is pollinated by ants. The native inhabitants used the juice of this flower to make dyes and body paint.
