Knowing Native Plants: The Amazing Aster Family Part 2, Confusing Yellow Composites

Saturday, September 28 1:00 pm
Saturday, September 28 4:00 pm


Join Naturalist Mary Anne Borge as we focus on the late summer and fall blooming confusing yellow composites, including goldenrods, sunflowers, coneflowers and beggar-ticks. 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. Attending ‘The Amazing Aster Family Part 1: Classic Asters and Colorful Companions’ prior to this class is recommended, but not required. Presentation/discussion will be followed by outdoor tour.
