Saturday, July 14, 10:00 am – 3:00 pm – Ants and Plants of Barton Woods

Two authors of the new Field Guide to the Ants of New England (Aaron Ellison, Senior Ecologist, Harvard Forest; and Elizabeth Farnsworth, Senior Research Ecologist, New England Wild Flower Society) lead this day of discovering ants in a botanically rich forest in Tiverton, Rhode Island. Along this moderate, 1.7 mile walk with gentle hills, visit a variety of habitats, including floodplain, pond-shore, boulder fields, and diverse oak uplands with several unusual plant species. Aaron and Elizabeth are fun and it should prove a great day. Saturday, July 14, 10 am to 3 pm (Rain date, Sunday, July 15, 10 am to 3 pm).
