Rare Plant Families

Where have all the flowers gone? Many are in decline; some more than others. In this class, we will gain a better understanding of the most threatened New England plant families. We will assess the varied effects of conservation concern on plant families ranging from the orchid family (Orchidaceae) to moonworts (Botrychium). In addition, we will discuss actions that Native Plant Trust and conservationists in the region are conducting to protect the taxa most in need.
