Digging Deeper: A Rose is Never Just a Rose - Plants in Community

James and Ellen Best’s Sara Stein Garden

Sat, Jun 17, 2023
2:00 PM- 4:00 PM

Mathew McDowell is a horticulturist and naturalist who specializes primarily in regional native plants, invasive species management, and designing planted spaces attractive to humans and wildlife. He's the Garden Director of the Leon Levy Native Plant Garden for Bedford Audubon Society and is a Wildflower Island tour guide at Teatown Lake Reservation. Plants are complicated beings. Each is a product of its own evolutionary history, and most importantly of its relations with the other plants and animals (humans included) with which it shares its habitat. In this walking guided tour, we'll be exploring the unique adaptations of plants to be found within the Sarah Stein Garden, many of which might be found growing wild in New York. In particular, we'll focus on the native species present and their complex interrelationships with local wildlife and each other, as well as threats they're facing.
