Spring Greetings from Woodland Wildflowers

Spring Greetings from Woodland Wildflowers

Join Grow Native Massachusetts for this workshop taught by Meredith Gallogly from 5:30pm to 7:45pm on May 23 in Middlesex Fells Reservation

Thursday, May 23, 2019 - 5:30pm to 7:45pm

Join Grow Native Massachusetts for this program taught by Meredith Gallogly, our Manager of Programs. It will be conducted entirely in the field, at Middlesex Fells Reservation.

Every spring in New England, we are greeted by a beautiful bouquet of flowers blooming throughout our woodlands. Many of these plants emerge early to soak up the sun before the forest canopy has fully leafed out, and quite a few species have co-evolved with early-emerging insect pollinators, resulting in unique, interdependent life cycles. Spring wildflowers are often delicate in appearance, belying their amazing toughness and adaptability. Join Meredith in a diverse and beautiful area of the Fells to get to know some of these flowers, and learn the best ways to incorporate them into a designed landscape.

Meredith Gallogly is the Manager of Programs at Grow Native Massachusetts. She is a skilled botanist, and much of her plant identification knowledge comes from her explorations of metro-Boston area parks and reservations. She holds a B.A. in Biology from Smith College.

Continuing education credits will be available. Meetings location details will be sent directly to registered participants.
