Wildflowers of New England
This hybrid course provides a comprehensive introduction to spring-blooming native plants, including their identification, ecology, and conservation. We explore New England’s native plants in a field setting at Garden in the Woods by studying key identification features of flowers, leaves, and stems; family characteristics; growth patterns; pollinators; seed dispersers; and habitats. You will learn basic botanical skills and tools to identify wildflowers and study pollination and coevolution of flower structure and design, habitats and ecology, and conservation concerns. For this class you will need the book Wildflowers of New England by Ted Elliman. The first three classes will be live online via Zoom, and the last class will be held in person at Garden in the Woods.
