Spring Wildflowers of the Northeast: A Natural History

Carol Gracie, Naturalist, Photographer, and Author
1 Session: Sunday, April 28, 1:30–3:00pm
Location: New England Wild Flower Society’s Garden in the Woods

Wildflowers that brighten our woodlands in spring are more than a delight for the eyes and a lift for winter-weary spirits. Each has a role in the environment, with often interesting interactions with pollinators and seed dispersers. Learn about the life histories of some of your favorite spring wildflowers. Carol Gracie will speak about adaptations for early blooming, medicinal and other uses, origin of wildflower names, and some of the latest scientific research on the ecology of these beautiful plants. Following the lecture and book signing, enjoy an optional docent-led walk through Garden in the Woods in its early spring glory.
