Spring Ephemerals


The Spring Ephemerals project began in January 2020 when a circle of friends decided to lead group hikes through the woods of Western Massachusetts in search of ephemerals later that spring.

When the pandemic put a quick stop to the idea of gathering in groups, they improvised and made a digital guide so friends could seek out the magic of spring safely, as individuals or with their pods.

The project continues to add flowers, hikes, and creative collaborators each year.
