Adventures with Oddities: Strange and Noteworthy Natives with Dan Jaffe Wilder


MACC Lunch & Learn Webinar Series : July 16th at 12 Noon.

 

REGISTRATION NOW REQUIRED FOR LUNCH & LEARNS SEE BLOW

About this talk:

Our native flora is full of amazing things! Did you know that big-leaf aster was once known as Lumberjack Toilet Paper or that the berries of poison ivy are loved by birds? How about that the berries of chokeberry contain seven times more antioxidants than lowbush blueberries or that Jack-in-the-Pulpit can change sexes? From unique flavors, to hilarious names to the oddest of survival strategies there are strange and noteworthy plants right outside our back doors if we simply know where to look. Join Dan Jaffe Wilder, author and photographer of Native Plants for New England Gardens to learn about all of these oddities and more.

 

About the Presenter: 
Photographer and author Dan Jaffe Wilder earned a degree in botany from the University of Maine, Orono, an advanced certificate in Native Plant Horticulture and Design from Native Plant Trust (formally New England Wild Flower Society), and has years of nursery management and plant sales experience. He is passionate about ecological horticulture, building both sustainability and wildlife value into every landscape, and the foraging and cultivation of wild edible plants. He is the Horticulturalist and Propagator for Norcross Wildlife Sanctuary and the staff photographer. His book, co-authored with Mark Richardson,  Native Plants for New England Gardens was released spring of 2018.
