  24. […] VNPS Trillium Walks (April 30, 9:30-3; May 4, 5 p.m.): This Virginia Native Plant Society walk features one of the largest displays in the world (millions) of great white trillium, other spring wildflowers, including native orchids, trees and a variety of wildlife. Local naturalist, storyteller and blogger Alonso Abugattas leads the first walk (April 30), on a somewhat rocky two-mile trail, and discussions on plant folklore, natural history, identification and ethnobotany. At Thompson Wildlife Management Area, near Linden. Free and open to the public, but space is limited, so RSVP is required vnps20160430.eventbrite.com. VNPS holds another trillium walk on the evening of May 4 at the same location, led by VNPS members Kristin Zimet and Carrie Blair; contact piedmontvnps@gmail.com for questions about this walk.
