Fall Planting of Trees and Shrubs

Saturday, October 4 - Take advantage of cooler temperatures in the fall to plant something new before winter begins. It's very satisfying to look upon a tree you've planted yourself, especially years later, but ensuring that a tree gets a healthy start involves much more than just digging a hole.


The Understory

In "Blue on Blue," Erin Schaeffer explains the connection between the Karner Blue butterfly and Lupinus perennis, the native blue lupine, seeds of which the conservation team collected in New Hampshire. 


The phenomenon of "plant blindness,"

and how botanists and other plant scientists are working to combat it.
