The forested land at Hidden Valley Nature Center in Jefferson is a beautiful piece of woodland with a variety of interesting native plants. On this summer native plant walk, learn about some of the wildflowers, ferns, shrubs and trees native to Maine. Leader Heather McCargo will talk about which species are adaptable to gardens and developed landscapes, and the threats to their survival. You will be inspired by their unusual reproductive strategies, as well as edible and medicinal properties. Learning to recognize the native species in our midst is the first step to advocating for their preservation.
