Berkshire Botanical Garden
New England Plant Communities
Join ecologist Ted Elliman for an exploration of native New England plant communities. A Friday lecture will cover many of the forest, meadow and wetland habitats found in Berkshire County, discussing their physical and ecological features: topography, geology, soils, and moisture; as well as their characteristic plant associations, including both common and rare plants. The Saturday field trip will take us to a variety of forested, open and wetland habitats, and we will take a close look at the flora and features of each of them. Full Course: $135, $120 members: Friday only: Members: $35, $25 members.
