In Person: Native Plant Walk at Pleasant Hill Preserve
October 8, 2022 @ 9:30 AM - 11:30 AM
Woodlands and meadows contain a variety of interesting native plants and have a story to tell about landscape history. In this native plant walk, Heather McCargo will highlight the surprising diversity of species native to Maine, including fall wildflowers, ferns, and a variety of native shrubs and trees. We will learn which species are adaptable to gardens and developed landscapes, their edible and medicinal properties, unusual reproductive strategies, and the threats to their survival. Learning to recognize the native species in our midst is the first step toward advocating for their conservation. Learn more and register here.
