When: Fri., Oct. 13, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. & 4-6 p.m. 2017
Join Garden in the Woods ecologist Ted Elliman for an exploration of native New England plant communities. The Friday lecture will cover the habitats found in Berkshire County, topography, geology, soils, and moisture, as well as their characteristic plant associations. The Saturday field trip will cover forested, open, and wetland habitats, and we will take a close look at the flora and features of each of them. Ted will also discuss impacts of invasive species, and possible changes to natural communities in response to climate change.
