Clare Cole will present a wildflower identification slideshow at the Belfast Free Library on April 3rd, at 6:30pm. She will discuss which wildflowers bloom in this area of Maine as the seasons progress from spring to summer, and key characteristics to help you identify various species. Clare is a Maine Master Naturalist.  Her capstone project was identifying the flowering plants at Bangor City Forest. She continued the project and has identified over 250 species of wildflowers and shrubs to date.  She also has a degree in forestry and enjoys hiking and backpacking with her husband and three grown sons.
