Plant ID and Ecology: Goldenrods and Milkweeds

August 24 @ 9:30 am - 2:30 pm

Milkweeds and goldenrods adorn our New England landscapes from July through October in shades of white, pink, and yellow, providing beauty and valuable nectar and pollen to native pollinators. Native plant ecologist and botanist Ted Elliman will lead students through a deep dive into the botanical and ecological lessons of these genera and species through a lecture, slideshow, and outdoor field study. 

Class Level: Intermediate-Advanced


Hand lenses will be made available for students who don’t have theirs on hand.
