Saturday, October 5, 10:00 am – 12:00 noon – Plant Identification: What is That Beautiful Plant and How Can I Grow It?


The Ecological Landscaping Association will sponsor a free Eco-Tour on Saturday, October 5, from 10 – 12 at Cold Spring Park, 1200 Beacon Street in Newton, Massachusetts.  The tour will provide access to dozens of plants that Bruce Wenning, an ELA Board member since 2003 and a regular contributor to the ELA Newsletter and the Newton TAB, will identify and discuss.  Learn plant identification skills, learn the names and growing characteristics of some plants that you recognize, discover the name and characteristics of plants new to you, and learn growing tips on plants that you might want to consider for your own landscape.  This will be a slow paced walk, with more time spent discussing plants than walking.  The event is free but please book your place as numbers are limited.  Call 617-436-5838, or email ela.info@comcast.net.
