Winter Botany Workshop: Wildflower Vestiges

February 3 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

What are those dried stalks in your yard, along the trail, in the meadow? Join Dr. Robin Sears and peers to explore and identify some of these vestiges of spring and summer wildflowers. Fear not! There will be no dichotomous key in this session! Come with curiosity and outdoor clothes, but an excellent resource is the book “Weeds in Winter” by Lauren Brown.

All learners are welcome, no botany experience necessary. While kids are welcome to join, the content will be geared towards adults.

By the Way Berkshires is a digital magazine exploring creative life and community — art and performance, food and the outdoors — and I’m writing it for you, with local voices, because I’ve gotten to know this rich part of the world as a writer and journalist, and I want to share it with you.

If you’d like to see the website grow, you can join me for a few dollars a month, enough for a cup of coffee and a cider doughnut. Members get access to extra stories and multimedia, itineraries a bookmark tool. Let me know what you're looking for, and we’ll explore together.
