Wildflower Walk at the Dreibelbis Historic Farm in Virginville

May 4 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Free

On Saturday, May 4, 2024 at 1:30 PM the Dreibelbis Farm Historical Society will host a Spring Wildflower Walk at the Historic Dreibelbis Farm in Virginville.  Dozens of varieties of wildflowers, many of which bloom for short periods are appearing in spring meadows, wetlands, and forests   Visitors may find plants like bloodroot, wild ginger, Hepatica, and Jack-in-the-pulpit.  Naturalist–guide for this walk will be Albright College Biology professor emerita, Dr. Susan Munch, who has led previous events at the Dreibelbis Historic Farm and many places in Berks County.

Because this is a “walk on the wild side” of the farm, we ask that participants wear sturdy shoes.  No flip-flops, please!  There may be wet spots and mud.  The event is free to the public and will be held rain or shine — only thunderstorms cancelling.  Parking is on-site and monetary donations will be gratefully accepted.

The Historic Dreibelbis Farm is located on Route 143 south of the village of Virginville.  GPS  Address: 356 Hard Hill Road, Hamburg, PA.

The Spring Wildflower Walk is an environmental/educational event hosted by the DFHS, to fulfill their mission to preserve and protect the historic Dreibelbis farm and to make it available to the public. The thirteenth annual Historic Farm Festival will be held on Saturday, August 24th.
