Delve deeper into the New England Flora in this New England Wild Flower Society online and field course. Learn how plants change as they grow; how they interact with other species; and how geology, soils, land-use history, hydrology, and climate shape the plant communities of the region. You’ll adopt a plant to observe throughout the course and enjoy interacting with the course instructor Dr. Elizabeth Farnsworth and your fellow students. This course includes five weeks of online instruction. You can elect to join an optional field trip led by an enthusiastic botanist in your state. Plants 101 is a complement to Plants 102 but is not a prerequisite.
Field Trip Note: One field trip will be held in each New England state and participation is optional. If you would like to attend the trip as part of the course, please register for both the course and the field trip. Field trip dates and specific locations will be announced six weeks before the course launches. $100 for NEWFS members, $125 for nonmembers. Course plus field trip $128 for NEWFS members, $160 for nonmembers. Register at http://newenglandwild.org/learn/our-programs/plants-102-deeper-into-the-green-world-1
