  • Talk-to-the-Experts: Botany Walk with Nathan Lambstrom

    When: Saturday, June 1, 2024   |   1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
    Where:
    Audubon George Parker Woodland Wildlife Refuge, 1670 Maple Valley Rd, Coventry, RI 02827

    Field botany and plant identification walk with Nathan Lambstrom in the George B. Parker Woodland Wildlife Refuge Coventry, RI.Walking through the various ecosystems of George B. Parker Woodland Wildlife Refuge, we will review basic identifying features of various native plants in leaf and flower, as well as practice the pattern recognition and other techniques used by field botanists to identify unknown species. The walk begins in an upland meadow, traverses a mixed deciduous woodland, and passes through a wooded wetland before culminating at a stream bank. By seeing native plants in their wild habitat, we will get a sense not only of where to find them in the wild, but also the ecological niches they occupy, and how we can apply that information to plant selection as horticulturists. We will review identification characteristics and techniques for woody trees and shrubs, flowering perennials, and ferns. Please bring any relevant field guides and hand lenses if you have them (some will be available to borrow).
