Asters and Goldenrods

In late summer and early fall, asters and goldenrods come into their own. The morning discussion will include a presentation of the many asters and goldenrods in our region, focusing on their ecology and identification features. We will also examine specimens from the Society’s herbarium. Later we’ll visit a nearby natural area to identify the asters and goldenrods growing in the fields, woodlands, and wetlands. In the field, we’ll look carefully at the differences that characterize these species, Bring a hand lens and a bag lunch.
