Thursdays, June 3, 10 & 17, 6:30 – 8:45 pm, and Sundays, June 6 & 13, 9:00 am – 1:00 pm – Native New England Shrubs

The New England Wild Flower Society plans a five session course with Roland “Boot” Boutwell, beginning June 3, which will be held at Garden in the Woods in Framingham, plus various field sites.  The many species of native New England shrubs display a wide variation in size, shape, color and characteristics of their bark, flowers, and fruits.  This course introduces students to approximately 50 species growing in this region.  Identification will be emphasized, and students will become familiar with family characteristics and historic uses.  Bring a hand lens to each session.  Weekend sessions will be held at off-site locations and directions will be provided at the first class.  The fee is $195 for NEWFS members and $225 for non-members.  To register, log on to
