Thursday, July 15, 9:30 am – 3:00 pm – Wetland Plant Identification
In this New England Wild Flower Society workshop at Garden in the Woods in Framingham on Thursday, July 15, from 9:30 – 3:00, you will focus on a variety of wetland community types, their ecology, and common indicator species. Following a short introductory lecture, you will visit wetland habitats, including a red-maple swamp, a flood-plain marsh, and a pond. While in the field, take advantage of the season by exploring ferns, sedges, and various aquatic species, as well as shrubs and trees. Bring a hand lens, lunch, and come prepared for wet feet in the field. Frances Clark will lead, and the price to participate is $61 for NEWFS members and $72 for nonmembers. Register at www.newfs.org.
