I found my first Skunk Cabbage rising up from the cold, cold ground today!
Beginning in late winter, the skunk cabbage is the first life to emerge from the cold snow covered ground. Through its rapid growth, its cellular respiration actually melts the snow around it reaching up to 60 degrees Fahrenheit!
The first wildflower of the year!
Since 2015 we have been exploring and sharing all the amazing things we’ve found in nature.
