Common New England Shrubs at Greenwood Park with Boot Boutwell

Wednesday, September 22, 9:15 am - 11:30 am

Greenwood Park parking lot, 176 Pond St., Stoneham, MA

Leader: Boot Boutwell

Shrubs are a key part of our New England Landscapes. This class will take a close look at 10-12 common New England shrubs such as witch hazel, high bush blueberry and spicebush, as well as a few non-native invasive shrubs. The class will focus on plant ID as well as fun and interesting natural history. We’ll see a plant which can be used to make a lemonade-like drink packed with vitamin C, a plant which can be used to produce soap and a plant which the Chippewa used to produce a remedy for craziness. 

Meet in the Greenwood Park parking lot, 176 Pond St in Stoneham, across the street from the Stone Zoo.

Steady rain cancels.
