SESSION 3 OF 2020 HOME GARDENING LECTURE SERIES - 2 LA HSW CREDIT HOURS WILL BE AWARDED
Carol Gracie says, “The beauty of local wildflowers enhances our enjoyment of spring but a look behind their pretty faces reveal the important roles they play in the ecology of our eastern forest environment.” Carol presents how wildflowers have adapted to their shaded environment. She discusses their role as an important food resource for emerging insects, methods of pollination and seed dispersal, and uses in our home gardens.
Carol Gracie retired from NYBG where she led natural history tours for 25 years. Her scientific work led to naming several newly discovered tropical plant species. Returning to her interest in local flora and its photography, Carol is the author/photographer of Spring Wildflower’s of the Northeast: A Natural History.
