If planted in a protected area, they’ll often reseed themselves.

This is an outstanding opportunity. Adults $14, Seniors $12, Children 12 and under Free.

Also, Valley Forge National Park has many places for a Spring walk, both natural and paved (keep in mind the Valley Forge Road Bridge closing for detours into the Park) .
