Saturday, September 21, 9:30 am – 12:30 pm – Wildflowers in the Fall


A follow-up to New England Wild Flower Society’s spring course, “Wildflowers of New England,” this class highlights flora in the last stages of the growing season. What fruits have the spring wildflowers produced, and how are they dispersed? Which flowers are blooming in the fall and why? Which pollinators are active? The program includes a walk in the Garden, a power-point presentation to illustrate key points, and samples for dissection and close observation. References for fruits and winter identification will be provided. Bring Newcomb’s Wildflower Guide and a 10x hand lens to Garden in the Woods in Framingham.  The course will be held Saturday, September 21, from 9:30 – 12:30, led by Dr. Neela De Zoysa, botanist and author of A Field Guide to the Common Trees and Shrubs of Sri Lanka, and costs $40 for NEWFS members, and $48 for nonmembers.  Register online at www.newfs.org/learn/catalog/bot3009.
