Botanical Master Class: Goldenrods and Asters

  • 1635 River Rd New Hope, PA, 18938 United States

Goldenrod species can be challenging to identify. Botanists must often look for subtleties in leaf structure and the shape of inflorescences to establish a positive identification. Join Dr. Ann Rhodes as she focuses on the asters and goldenrods of our area. Program includes a presentation and hands-on time to examine live specimens of many different species. Time permitting, we’ll conclude with a walk outside to look at species growing at the Preserve. Ann Rhodes is a botanist recently retired from 36 years of employment at the Morris Arboretum of the University of Pennsylvania. She co-authored The Plants of Pennsylvania, An Illustrated Manual, with Dr. Timothy A. Block.
