Wildflowers in July


Originally uploaded by Camp Naturalist.

The wild bergamont[above] is a member of the mint family. It has a square stem characterist of the mints.  Wild bergamont can be found on Massasauga trail and at the head of main trail.



Above is Wild Carrot(aka, bird’s nest or Queen Anne’s Lace ) which is a wild edible plant.  But there are other white flowered plants that look similar that are extremely poisonous (Poison Hemlock(Conium maculatum) or Water Hemlock (Cicuta maculata))so make sure 100% sure before you decide to take a bite. Queen Anne’s Lace is the only plant with a small maroon flower in the center.
