Daniel Cooke will lead this 3rd workshop in our plant identification series, beginning with an outside tour of the native goldenrods and asters at the NGBH gardens to see the two genera in situ and discuss ecological characteristics of both, observing the flowers blooming in the landscape. The workshop will continue indoors where specific botanical traits will be identified and compared for a more in-depth understanding of the structures of the plants. Fee: $25. Space is limited; click here to submit a registration form to reserve your spot.
A resident of Blue Hill, Daniel Cooke has a B.S. in Botany ’06 from Humboldt State University in Arcata, CA, and a Master of Landscape Architecture from Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge. After working in the film industry building sets and suggesting species-specific plant palettes to help establish a sense of setting for major motion pictures, he and his husband moved to Blue Hill to enjoy the great sense of community and natural wonders that the Downeast landscape provides.
This event is hosted by Native Gardens of Blue Hill.
