The Pocahontas Chapter of the Virginia Native Plant Society will meet at Dorey Park to search for the first unique flower of spring, the eastern skunk cabbage. This flower can be found even with snow on the ground because it generates heat and melts the surrounding snow. It also emits a sulfur-like odor, giving the flower its name. Anyone with an interest in the native landscape is welcome, from novice to expert. The walk is free and will start at 2 p.m. To participate, contact trip leader Leslie Allanson at 335-5866 or leleorr4@gmail.com.
