Spring is breaking out all over, and the native wildflowers are among the first to greet the season. Come explore them, at NJBG’s Spring Wildflower Walk at the New Jersey State Botanical Garden, on Saturday, May 17, at 10 a.m.

NJBG’s Wildflower Garden is a haven for native plants, many of which are at their best in the spring. Join NJBG wildflower experts to explore the spring bloomers in a walk that will explore several different terrains and the plants that inhabit them, including a spectacular collection of Japanese primroses along the Wildflower Garden’s streams. Wear comfortable shoes; meet at the Carriage House Visitor Center. Rain cancels. A $5 donation is requested.

The New Jersey State Botanical Garden at Skylands is open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. every day. Admission to the Garden is always free; parking is free in the spring as well.

NJBG/Skylands is located on Morris Road in Ringwood. For an event schedule, membership brochure, directions or more information, call 973-962-9534 or visit
