Camassia Slopes Wildflower Field Trip

Camassia Slopes Field Trip
Northampton County, NC
April 7th, 2015
Preserve owned by The Nature Conservancy 

My friend Jim Fowler(you can ck out his blog here) sent me an email about this field trip. It is a place I'd been wanting to visit for years and for good reason. The preserve contains wildflower species considered rare in North Carolina including sessile Trillium(Trillium sessile), purple larkspur(Delphinium tricorne) and three birds orchid(Triphora trianthophora). Camassia lily(Camassia scilloides), for which the preserve is named, grows abundantly in hardwood forests and is rare east of the Appalachians. In all, more than two dozen species of endangered, threaten, or rare species are found at Camassia Slopes.
