Knowing Native Plants: The Amazing Aster Family Part 1, Classic Asters and Their Colorful Companions
Join Naturalist Mary Anne Borge to find out what makes aster family members different from all other plants, and learn their importance to both wildlife and people. During the outside portion of the class, we’ll look for these plants, and signs of the relationships they have with the insects, birds and other animals that depend on them. Presentation/discussion will be followed by outdoor tour.
