Wildflowers of the Rensselaer Plateau and Beyond with Chris Graham
Thursday, March 17, 2022 at 7pm on Zoom. Part of the Rensselaer Plateau Alliance’s monthly Lecture Series.
Wildflowers dazzle us with their beauty and variety, and play important ecological roles for insects, birds, mammals, and more. The Rensselaer Plateau, and the Hudson Valley as a whole, harbor an impressive diversity of wildflower species. We will learn about many that you are likely to see in the forests, fields, and wetlands of the region, including basic identification features, phenology, habitat affinities, and ecological relationships.
Pre-registration is required; please learn more and register at www.rensselaerplateau.org. Presented by Chris Graham, a field botanist at Hudsonia, Ltd.
