CALENDAR LISTINGS FOR Sunday, September
BRATTLEBORO Introduction to Grasses with Botanist Mike Duffy: For the first session (9/5) we'll explore the West River Trail in Brattleboro. Mike will talk about grasses from the landscape perspective - their importance for wildlife and their ecology. We'll admire the handsome and distinctive grasses that grow along the river and learn what makes a grass a grass. The second session (9/12) will take place at BEEC and begin around the picnic tables with a closer look at the subtle flowers of grasses. Two sessions: 9/5 and 9/12. At the 9/12 session, you will also learn the terminology needed to take the next steps in grass identification and look at some grass flowers under a microscope.
