Reading the Winter Landscape

  • prospect Hill Park, Waltham MA (map)

Instructor: Meredith Gallogly. Manager of Programs, Grow Native

A woodland in winter may seem empty and inscrutable, with its leafless trees and shrubs melding into an indistinguishable mass. But the bareness of this landscape brings other subtler features into focus, and once you learn to see them, a dormant woodland will seem to burst with life. Join Meredith to practice reading the winter landscape, from understanding how evergreen plants cope with freezing weather to identifying woody plants from bark and buds. We will discuss how the change of seasons is intrinsic to the life cycles of plants and other organisms, and find lessons from these natural communities that will help us bring full-season ecological functionality and beauty to our designed landscapes and gardens.
