In late summer and early fall, asters and goldenrods come into their own. In this class, the morning discussion will include a presentation of many of Berkshire County's asters and goldenrods, focusing on their indentification features and discussing their characteristic habitats. In the afternoon, we'll explore nearby natural areas to observe and identify the asters and goldenrods growing in meadows, woodlands, and wetlands. We'll look carefully at the differences that characterize these species. A hand lens is recommended. We will travel by passenger van. Please dress for weather and bring a bagged lunch.
