Humans have long used and altered the landscape of Sky Meadows to their benefit by utilizing native plants and introducing new species. Join professional outdoor instructor Tim MacWelch for a plant identification walk focusing on the native plants that were useful to the American Colonists and the non-native species they brought with them to the New World.
All ages are welcome and no registration is necessary. The workshop will be held rain or shine. Bring water, dress in layers, and wear sturdy shoes.
