Spring Wildflowers of Maine
with Wanda Garland
This class will consist of two indoor evening classes followed by six Saturday field-based classes. The evening classes will cover field identification of local wildflowers, trees and shrubs presented with slides, samples and discussion. This will prepare participants for the field classes, which will meet at six different locations, that will be listed on a printed handout. Please note: the two evening classes meet on Thursday (4/27 & 5/4) followed by six Saturday field trips (5/6 - 6/10).The recommended book for this class is The Plants of Baxter State Park, for sale directly from the park for $17, which covers ship- ping. Other suggested books include: Forest Tress of Maine, available at local bookstores and from the Maine Forest Service; The Plants of Acadia National Park, available at most coastal bookstores; Spring Wildflowers of New England by Marilyn Dwelley, which is out of print but available via online used books; Petersons Guide to Wildflowers. For the field-bases classes, participants need to dress for outdoor activity and be prepared to hike over rough ground. Please wear hiking or work boots, bring a walking stick if needed, and carry a small pack which should include the following: one quart of water and a high energy snack, insect repellent, notebook and pen, camera, magnifying glass or hand lens and a field guide (chosen book). If needed, call the instructor for more info at 620-0688.
