Plant ID: Plants Everyone Should Know (Ferns)
Environment / Nature - Class/Workshop
Sunday, August 20, 2017
1:00 PM-4:00 PM
Some of the more than 2500 plants in New England are so common that we can see them almost anywhere, on any given day, if we know how to look. Red maple, meadowsweet, partridgeberry, and hay-scented fern are good examples - can you identify them? Knowing very common plants from four broad groupings can provide you with a solid foundation for futher plant study and will help you make comparisons when identifying new species.
We will learn to identify a dozen plants in each session by looking at plant structures, using field guides, exploring habitats, and discovering awesome adaptations of our local flora. We will look at Broad Meadow Brook's new native plant gardens and explore along the trails as well.
