Spring and early summer are probably best known as the peak season for wildflowers, however many don’t realize how much the fall has to offer too! Join ecologist Dan Stuart for a whirlwind wildflower tour to explore High Park’s forests, wetlands, and oak savannah ecosystems and their late-season bloomers. This workshop will focus on plant identification techniques and ecosystem dynamics, with an emphasis on native fall wildflower groups such as Asters and Goldenrods.
Participants will leave with the following:
The workshop will include an indoor seminar followed by an outdoor field hike. The hike will be moderate in difficulty, and participants should come prepared with comfortable outdoor gear. Those with access to hand lens should bring one along, as some plants require examination of small-scale parts.
