Field Trip Dates: Aug. 31, Sept. 28 and Oct. 12
The field trips of approximately 2 ½ hours will introduce students to three local preserves: Griggstown Grassland, The Watershed Institute, and Bowman’s Hill Wildflower Preserve. We will see a variety of late summer/early fall wildflowers such as goldenrods, asters both purple and white, New York ironweed, jewelweed, sunflowers of several species, bonesets and many others. Part of our enjoyment will be discovering unexpected flowers and identifying them. Please bring a field guide to wildflowers of the Northeast if you own one; there will some to borrow if you do not. Instructor will contact students prior to the first class for the meeting locations.
