The Diversity and Ecological Value of Native Shrubs - Grow Native Mass - Workshop

Saturday, June 15, 2019

Please join us for this intensive workshop program, taught by Meredith Gallogly and presented by Grow Native Massachusetts.

June is the peak time for some of our loveliest flowering shrubs, many of which also have tremendous value as host plants for the larvae of moths and butterflies.

Join Meredith to learn about the diverse mix of native shrub species found in Stony Brook Reservation, the largest green space in the city of Boston and a hidden gem for plant lovers.

This program will cover the basics of woody plant identification, and highlight underutilized species that have tremendous potential for use in challenging landscape settings.

Meredith Gallogly is the Manager of Programs at Grow Native Massachusetts. She is a skilled botanist, and much of her plant identification knowledge comes from her explorations of metro-Boston area parks and reservations. She holds a B.A. in Biology from Smith College.

This workshop will be conducted entirely in the field. Enrollment at each session is limited to 15.

Continuing education credits will be available.

There will be a repeat session of this workshop given on Wednesday June 19 from 5:30pm - 7:45pm. Look for details on the registration page linked below.
