Mid-Coast Audubon presents naturalist Wanda Garland sharing her vast knowledge of Maine wildflowers, Thursday, April 17, at 7 p.m. at Camden Public Library, 55 Main St.

The program is free and open to the public but donations are always welcome. The presentation will cover spring native wild flowers, their ecology and local places to walk and find them. It will also include spring native flowering shrubs that are important to bees and butterflies and where to find them in the wild. Garland will share twig samples if the season cooperates.

She has studied native wild flowers all her life, growing up in northern Maine on a dairy and sheep farm that was surrounded by forested hills. She was taught to know the trees and many wildflowers by her parents. She holds a degree in biology and taught high school biology for many years. Garland enjoys speaking to groups about native wildflowers and their importance in Maine as well as leading wildflower walks to local preserves, trails, bogs and other wild and interesting places.
