Most of the shrub layer was dominated by the invasive exotic,  Coral ardisia (Ardisia crenata) which was full of bright red berries. This Asian plant was brought in for landscaping purposes. Here it is dominating the landscape! (Pictured below)

A nice boardwalk through the woods though.

 

Jet view of Shenks Ferry Wildflower Preserve

Saturday, March 7th, 2015

This cold morning, March 7th, while on a commercial Jet, a view of Shenks Ferry Wildflower Preserve and the Lower Susquehanna Valley was captured with an I phone 6. Cold and snowy now, but in a month and a week or so, there will be bluebells and Trilliums abound! Imagine that!

The preserve is located just to the right of the larger Island in the middle of the picture.
