Native New England Shrubs
Adult Enrichment / Walking Tours -
Shrubs are a key part of our New England landscapes. Take a close look at 10–12 common native New England shrubs such as the high bush blueberry and spicebush, and as well as a few non-native invasive shrubs. The class will focus on plant identification as well as fun and interesting natural history. We’ll see a plant that can be used to make a lemonade-like drink packed with vitamin C, a plant that can be used to produce soap, and a plant that the Chippewa used to produce a remedy for craziness. Please note: Students will be asked to adhere to public health guidelines. Meeting location will be included in the Registration Confirmation email. All walks meet rain or shine. Children ages 10+ are welcome to register if accompanied by a registered adult.
