Native Plant Walk: Coffin Wildflower Reservation

$25

with Heather McCargo

Calendar Next session starts Aug 24, 2019 at 10 am

The Coffin Wildflower Reservation in Woolwich is one of nine owned by the Native PLant Trust (formerly New England Wildflower Society). Hilly woods, a brook, and 1,256 feet of sandy shore and tidal marsh make up the 177-acre area, which borders lovely Merrymeeting Bay, well-known for its diversity of waterfowl. Hike the woodland trails along the east side of the bay to a large, old stand of bigtooth aspen and fascinating freshwater estuary plants that are limited to this rare habitat type.

This program is co-sponsored by the Native Plant Trust and Wild Seed Project, and will be led by Heather McCargo of Wild Seed Project.

Nature Journaling - Wildflowers

$40

with Andrea Lani

Calendar Next session starts Jun 29, 2019 at 10 am

Members price: $30, Nonmembers $40
Location: Fields Pond, Holden

June is an extra-special time at Fields Pond Audubon Center, when the woodland wildflowers can be seen on the forest floor. Join Maine Master Naturalist, Andrea Lani as we seek out, identify, draw, and write about some of the season’s blooms. We’ll start the day with an introduction to nature journaling, during which participants will learn a variety of drawing techniques designed to help even the most reluctant artist overcome their fears. Then we’ll head out into the woods; we’ll sketch, make observations of, and celebrate these flowers in our journals. If you’re a novice naturalist this class will help you start identifying flowers with your journal as your aid. If you’re an expert botanist you’ll learn ways to record your observations and deepen your appreciation through journaling.

Please bring a blank book, notebook, or journal and your preferred writing and drawing tools (pencil, pen, colored pencils), as well as lunch, water, and snacks. We will spend time both indoors and outdoors and will walk up to a mile or more in search of flowers, so please dress accordingly and consider wearing a hat, sunscreen, insect repellant, and whatever tick-proof clothing you prefer. You might also want to bring a folding camp chair, sit mat, or extra jacket for sitting on the ground.
