Meeting site and other details will be provided at registration.
Calling all beginners! Would you like to identify the sparkling flowers springing up all around? Would you like to learn more about plants? How about tackling the (locally) legendary Newcomb’s Wildflower Guide among friends? Grab your book, or another favorite field guide and hand-lens, then join us for a hands-on, in-person plant identification workshop. We will view common wildflower specimens together, and will have an opportunity to walk a short nature trail to identify plants in their habitat.
Registration is capped at 50 for this event.
Registration will be open to MNPS members until May 24, and to the general public after that date.
This is a free program.

Want to help preserve our regional biodiversity? Then bring your work gloves, knee pads, favorite weeding tools, & some elbow grease to remove unwanted plants from the Native Plant Garden. As you work, you’ll learn how to identify common weeds and why protecting native plants is so critical for wildlife. Meet at the Native Plant Garden near the lake dam. Please bring your own water bottle, tick spray, & sunscreen.
In case of rain this activity will be cancelled.
