Our gardens, roadsides, and meadows are aglow with color in the fall. In this class, students will learn to recognize the most common fall-blooming wildflowers in the Georgia Piedmont and be introduced to the basic botanical terminology used in identifying and describing fall-flowering plants, with an emphasis on plants in the Aster (composite) Family. We will then apply that knowledge to plants in the field, learning to recognize families, genera, and species based on characteristics readily observable in the field.
