Event description

Description

Ever wonder what that elliptical growth is that stands out in a scrubby old field, or how beautiful that spiky plant looks with its newly formed flower– what is it? How do insects you see in your garden during the growing season manage to survive in the heat? What are the song sparrows and woodpeckers eating during this seemingly plentiful time of year?

All will be revealed in this three-hour presentation/ field walk as Blaine Rothauser, Senior Natural Resource Specialist with GZA, GeoEnvironmental pumps up your naturalistic tendencies, galvanizing you to take a closer look at the world during this season.

By the time the program is over you can expect to name the most common plants (…what some call weeds) amongst field and stream, meadow and wood, and come away with a deeper appreciation for the survival mechanisms of the fauna that rely on them during the harsh summer heat.

*This may serve as a summer season follow-up to January’s Winter Weeds, Galls and Insect Identification class or you may take this class as a summertime introductory session. The instructor will have plants saved from the winter class to compare with those now growing in the meadows.*

Please dress for the weather and don’t forget sunscreen and a hat. Some participants may wish to use bug spray. There will be a brief classroom session and most of the time will be spent outdoors. Bring a snack and water bottle.

Tickets are required to attend. The transfer of tickets is not permitted.
