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. You’ll learn about classic aster family members such as New England aster, aromatic aster, and many other species found in different habitats, some that bloom into November, as well as bonesets, white snakeroot, mistflower, and many others. Learn which of these species might be good candidates for your own garden. Attending ‘The Amazing Aster Family Part 1: Confusing Yellow Composites’ prior to this class is recommended, but not required.
