In late summer and early fall meadows come alive with wildflowers and insects. From the graceful pink Joe Pye Weed that blooms in mid-August to New England Aster, one of the last spectacles of the year, there is so much to see and enjoy in the fields near your home—maybe even right in your own backyard. Liz Thompson of Vermont Land Trust and Kent McFarland of Vermont Center for Ecostudies will introduce you to the flowers and insects of late summer, and the fascinating interactions between them, from pollination to the nurturing of young to predation. We’ll also give you tips for making your own yard a more pollinator-friendly place. Mills Riverside Park in Jericho, a site rich with wildflowers, will be a featured locality.
