In autumn our native Northeast flora can be spectacular, but difficult to identify. With a 10X power hand lens and a plant key, you'll learn to identify these wildflowers, shrubs, and trees on the Garden grounds.

Please note that Plant Structure OR Basic Plant ID is sufficient for the pre-requisite.
