Saturday, July 8, 10:00 am – 1:00 pm – Trees and Other Plants of the South Athol Conservation Area

On Saturday, July 8, from 10 – 1, join Nancy Goodman, Naturalist and Plant Conservation Volunteer with New England Wild Flower Society for this botanical exploration of the South Athol Conservation Area. Trees surround us and support us in so many important ways. Though they’re rooted in one place, they are complex, fascinating, and beautiful living things. Plants are also fascinating to look at and identify. We will be looking at a mix of plants and trees to learn what we can. We will also be paying attention to what changes we see when we go from one habitat to another, and how subtle this can be. Plants and trees can tell you a lot about the habitats you might be in. Meet 10 :00 am at the Conservation area. This program will be repeated on Saturday, September 16. Sponsored by the Athol Bird & Nature Club.
