Description: With names such as Wild Oats, Dwarf Ginseng, Dolls Eyes, and Canada Mayflower, our earliest blooming wildflowers take advantage of the bright sunshine on the forest floor to bloom and produce seed .Our outdoors walks we will appreciate and learn to recognize two dozen of our common species. Classes meet 2 Sunday afternoons and together form a series that looks in-depth at segments of the natural world. Each month is a different topic. Participants will gain a systematic knowledge of organismal groups which can be applied in the field. By building a foundation of a few common species across nature's many groups, you can recognize patterns and add new species by comparison, eventually gaining a thorough knowledge and understanding of local nature, natural communities, and habitats. Classes will be both indoors and outdoors using photos and specimens. There will be ample time to explore the sanctuary trails and put that practical knowledge to use. Joe Choinieres outdoor knowledge is both broad and deep. His gentle, hands-on teaching style makes it enjoyable and easy to learn. This series is equally suitable for beginners as well as those who want to deepen their knowledge. For more information and to register, call 508.753.6087.
