Upcoming Events

Plant Families Workshop

Saturday, March 25


NGBH, Bagaduce Music Performance Hall

49 South St, Blue Hill


Are you looking to sharpen your plant identification skills? Learning which flower, fruit, and leaf characteristics are shared among plants belonging to the same family can give you a head start on your journey. Retired horticulture professor Val Libby will guide you toward an understanding of related plants and ways to narrow down the possibilities for correct identification. During this indoor workshop, we will examine some of the most populous families of native Maine plants. Bring your notebook and questions! Fee: $25. Click here to pre-register (required).
