ACT’s Wildflowers

From the desk of Gal Potashnick, Outreach & Member Services Director;

Join ACT to Get Wild about (Late Season) Wildflowers!

FRANCONIA  –  The spring and early summer mean an explosion of wild blooms in the North Country and the White Mountains. But did you know that the late summer and early fall blooms are just as important? Want to learn more? Join the Ammonoosuc Conservation Trust (ACT) virtually on Thursday, August 12, from 6 to 7 p.m., right from your couch for the next program in ACT’s Speaker Series!

Spend an hour on a Thursday evening getting “Wild about Wildflowers” with special guest speaker Lori Jean Kinsey, the Executive Director of Tin Mountain Conservation Center in Albany, NH. The Tin Mountain Conservation Center provides educational programs for kids, adults, and families that foster greater awareness and understanding of the natural environment.

During the presentation, Lori will share the wildflowers that bloom in late summer and early fall.  The list includes some of the showiest and boldest flowers, such as cardinal flowers, gentians, and goldenrods.  Not only are these beautiful and vital to pollinators, but they often have unique seeds and seed dispersal techniques. The event will include a virtual tour with Lori to look at various habitats and see what’s blooming.

The program is free and open to the public, although donations are welcome and gladly accepted. Advanced registration is required to get log-in info – space is limited. Please register on the web at act-nh.org/education-events or call the office at (603) 823-7777.
