Native New England Shrubs

Shrubs vary widely in size, shape, color, bark, flower, and fruit. This course introduces you to many of the native New England shrub species that can be found at Garden in the Woods and throughout the local ecoregion. The learner-centered approach encourages students to develop skills that will help them identify any shrub through dichotomous key, field guides, or plant ID apps. We will focus on plant identification tools and techniques, developing an eye for identifying features of plants, and cultural plant uses. (This course is also offered online.)

Please note: We do not make video or audio recordings of classes or programs available after the fact, because we believe education is interactive, with instructors and students building a community and culture of learning. Some programs may be recorded strictly for instructor-training purposes. Please visit this page to review this and other FAQs about our policies.
