A great way to begin the study of native plants, this course focuses on learning to identify wild plants and provides field experience across the spectrum of New England flora. Â Sessions will cover plant identification using Newcombâ€™s Wildflower Guide. Â Students will become familiar with the family characteristics, growth patterns, habitats, and pollination mechanisms of many of our native wild flowers. Â We will also practice plant identification and study plant habitats in the field. Â Bring a hand lens to each class. Â Required text: Newcombâ€™s Wildflower Guide.Â Sessions (April 27, May 4, 11, and 18) will take place at Garden in the Woods in Framingham, from 10 – 12:30, and the series costs $130 for NEWFS members, and $150 for nonmembers.Â To register, or for more information, log on to www.newfs.org.
