Meet Your Green Neighbors
October 1st , 10:00am – 11:30am
This tour has been rescheduled from September 24th to October 1st due to anticipated heavy rain.
Whether you’re a budding botanist or simply enjoy wandering through Green-Wood, you’ve likely noticed a remarkable diversity of plants at every turn. But can you put a name to those fascinating photosynthesizers? Learning how to identify local flora can seem daunting, but with a little guidance and observation, you’ll be making connections in no time!
Price: $25, $20 for members
Join Molly Nash Rouzie, an expert plant watcher with certificates in botany and horticulture, for a tour of the Cemetery’s natural wonders and an introduction to plant identification. During this 90-minute walk, you’ll learn about the characteristics that help botanists make sense of the plants they encounter and come to appreciate the role of these “green neighbors” in our ecosystem.
