Native Plant Life of Lake Sunapee

  • The Fells Newbury, NH

Lake Sunapee is one of New Hampshire’s largest lakes, with eight miles of shoreline that hosts a wide range of native plants. Arthur Haines, author of Flora Novae Angliae, will lead a field study along the shoreline of Lake Sunapee to examine these plants and learn features of their identification and ecology, with some emphasis on those suited for use in horticulture (in order to design native plantings in this region). Wear footwear appropriate for uneven ground; bring a hand lens and protection from the elements.

This class is offered through the New England Wild Flower Society.
