By John Hollis | Marine Corps Base Quantico | April 20, 2015

Nature enthusiasts seeking to welcome spring and get closer to nature won’t want to miss this weekend’s Bluebell Festival at Merrimac Farm in Nokesville on Sunday. The farm, which connects the forests and wetlands aboard Marine Corps Base Quantico with the 300-acre wetland mitigation bank, is loaded with wetlands and vernal pools, and boasts one of the largest patches of Virginia Bluebells in the Northern Virginia region, according to the Prince William Conservation Alliance website. Native to North America and considered among the first annual signs of spring, Virginia Bluebells are generally considered to be among the prettiest of wildflowers. Blooming starts in early- to mid-spring with the formation of pink buds that later mature into lavender-blue flowers. Wetlands, upland fields and hardwood forests can also be readily found at Merrimac Farm. MORE
