Press release from class organizers:
Ever wondered what the name of wildflower was that you saw on your last hike? Wish that you knew more about the plants that grow around you? Want to be more connected to nature and to the places and plants that you love? You are invited to join Bigelow’s Botanical Excursions for a series of Summer Wildflower Walks where you will learn the stories of the plants; their many names, benefits, uses; and their relationship to each other, the forest, and to us.
