Spring Ephemerals (JM-24144)

Spring Ephemerals (JM-24144)

The forest floor in McGilvra Woods is covered with spring ephemeral wildflowers in May. This 15-acre woodland in Sauk County is one of the richest southern mesic forests in southwestern Wisconsin. The ground layer flora contains more than 110 species including some rather uncommon plants and many showy species including the Cut-leaved Toothwort and the False Rue Anemone seen in this image. McGilvra Woods is owned by the Wisconsin DNR and was designated a State Natural Area in 1986.
