Goldenrods And Asters: Catch The Last Bloom
Delaware Nature Society program, September 26, 2013

Visit several sites in Chester County, where we will go over the basics of identification of the goldenrods and asters - a diverse and colorful group of plants found throughout a wide range of habitats in our area. Hand lenses will be provided. Bring a bag lunch. -- Leader: William Ryan, Janet Ebert

Most photos were taken at the Stroud and ChesLen preserves.

My photos here don't reflect the variety of plants we saw. I didn't take pictures of any of the goldenrods, and only about half of the aster species.
