Join Donna Ware at 10:00 on Saturday, September 30th in the Williamsburg Botanical Garden at Freedom Park to see the exhibit being developed that features goldenrod species typical of open upland habitat. You will also see goldenrods growing in the  swamp and calcareous ravine habitats at the Garden. Twenty species of goldenrod (the genera Solidago and Euthamia) occur on the Peninsula, and most of them are now in cultivation in the Garden. As an aid to learning to recognize goldenrod species, you will see them side by side and learn to sort them according to the shapes of their inflorescences, whether the flowers are borne in a one-sided manner, and whether the stems are hairy.

Park in the Freedom Park Visitor Center lot and follow the pathway to the Botanical Garden. Contact Donna Ware at or 565-0657 for more information or to register.
