  • This event has passed.

With their stunning yellow flowers, goldenrods are one of the hallmark plants of autumn. But they do more than delight the eye. From bees and wasps to caterpillars and butterflies, goldenrods support hundreds of insects. This keystone species deserves a place in your garden. Join us to learn how goldenrod can add beauty and biodiversity to any landscape! A tour of the meadow follows the lecture.

This program takes place in-person (at Mt. Cuba Center) Saturday, September 18 (Rain Date: Saturday, September 25)
