Join ecologist Ted Elliman for a lecture highlighting wildflowers of New England's natural habitats, including alpine summits, forests, meadows, wetlands, and coastal environments. This program will focus on spring-flowering plants that will be (or almost be) in bloom in the forests and meadows of the Berkshires. After an introductory lecture, Elliman will lead a walking field study at BBG as well as at an off-site location. Optional transportation to the off-site location will be provided by BBG.
Ted Elliman has worked for the Native Plant Trust as a staff botanist, invasive species program manager, and as an instructor of botany, ecology, and conservation classes. His book, The Wildflowers of New England, an identification guide to much of the region's native flora, was published in 2016 by Timber Press.
