Trillium Treasureland: Field Trip to Shenks Ferry

See not one, but hundreds of trilliums surrounded by Virginia bluebells, Dutchman's breeches and other spring ephemerals. Visit Shenks Ferry, a spectacular one-of-kind wildflower preserve. Discover the ecology and geology of the area and understand how this unique wildflower treasure came to be. Although limited van transportation is available from Mt. Cuba Center, carpooling is encouraged since parking at Shenks Ferry is also limited. For more information on travel arrangements, email us at or call 302.239.8807. For those preferring to meet at the site, driving instructions are provided upon registration. Tour starts at 9 am. Bring your lunch and be prepared for a three-hour hike on rugged terrain. Sign up today so you won't miss out on this amazing journey.
