The Endless Mountains Nature Center will present Celebration of the Bluebells May 5 at 2 p.m. at their facility on Vosburg Road in Tunkhannock.

Tickets are $15 per person or $25 per couple. Tickets may be purchased online at www.emnconline.org or by calling 836.3835 ( leave a message).
The Celebration will also include a nature walk to the glowing-blue patch of Virginia Bluebells. On the way, Endless Mountains Nature Center Director and Naturalist Rebecca Lesko will identify and discuss any blooming wildflowers, such as yellow trout lilies, red trillium, pink and white spring beauties, green dragons and green and purple jack-in-the-pulpits. Sturdy shoes are recommended for this part of the Celebration because part of the trail is rough and rocky.
