Course Title: Winter Botany 2023 (Winter Term 2023)
Wonderful! I learned a lot! What could be more fun than walking on a trail with like-minded students, looking at buds and branches?
Teachers both encouraged participation and welcomed comments from all. A few well-informed participants in the class were encouraged to share information.
Course Title: Fall Botany 2022 (Fall Term 2022)
They listed plants, answered all questions, and soooo patient with slow walkers like me!
We hiked at various nature preserves and conservation land - all diverse and accompanied by a list of plants with familiar names and botanicals - vetted by Alice and Lynnwood in advance!
I would be happy to participate in this course every season; always more to learn—Alice and Lynwood are wonderfully pleasant, infinite sources of knowledge.
Course Title: Spring Wildflowers and Ferns (Spring Term 2022)
Alice and Lynnewood have a fantastic depth of knowledge about wildflowers and ferns and can impart that knowledge to their students.
Alice never fails to meet my expectations. This course is the epitome of one that meets the definition of lifelong learning. I will never be able to learn it all, so I will keep coming back repeatedly.
