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.
