Native Flora in Spring

Note the "location" of each session, as we have in-person and online options. Price differences may apply. Confirmation emails contain specific class instructions.
Witness the diversity of plants in the northeast as they flower and set seed in rapid succession. Follow the bloom sequence of spring wildflowers, shrubs and trees during this much anticipated season of rebirth. Learn to identify native plants using taxonomic keys and family characteristics. Students will practice these skills using a 10X hand lens during walks in the Garden. Prerequisite: Basic Plant ID
