Stalking Maine Wildflowers

Diane and some Lady Slippers

Dianne Sinclair has been stalking wildflowers in northern New England since 1988. Her PowerPoint presentation will sharpen your knowledge of local wildflowers, including some curious facts. Did you know that a Jack-in-the-Pulpit can change its sex? We will also discuss where to find these beauties. And to add a historic perspective, Dianne will share the story of Kate Furbish, a 19th century Maine botanist, who struggled against poverty and discrimination to create a lasting scientific legacy.

Her talk will begin at 1:30 pm, after a short business meeting, on Saturday June 18, 2016.   It will be a highly informative presentation and I hope you will be able to attend.  Also, you can purchase your garden tour tickets and quilt raffle tickets after the presentation.  See you there!
