Breaking news: Skunk Cabbage Seen Flowering in Dutchess County

NYFA board member Aissa Feldmann saw skunk cabbage blooming in a swamp at Stony Kill Farm near Beacon in Dutchess County on March 9th while performing surveys for New England cottontail. The snow was patchy (see photo) so she didn’t see the process of snow melting that characterizes these flowers. Spring is on the way!
