Botany in a Winter

January 24 Botany in a Winter session is postponed to January 31.  Instead, join us for “Homegrown National Park” special hybrid presentation from Doug Tallamy. More details here!

Botany in a Winter is a weekly exploration of the plants of the Northeast, family by family, in taxonomic order, led virtually by Maine Audubon Field Naturalist Andy Kapinos. Over the course of thirteen weeks, we will explore every vascular plant genus found in the Northeast, and examine the identifiable traits common to each interrelated group. Each week, we will focus on a clade of the evolutionary tree, between 150 and 400 species. While the programs are sequential and in taxonomic order, they can be attended individually. Those who attend every program will learn all of the common groups of plants in the Northeast, and be ready to take this knowledge into the field just as the plants begin a new growing season. The structure of these programs is based on Botany in a Day by Thomas J. Elpel and Flora Novae Angliae by Arthur Haines.
