 Belfast Bay Watershed Coalition presents Matt Arsenault, co-author of Grasses of Maine, 2018, will introduce grasses of Maine’s natural environment, the ecological benefits they provide (and problems they create), more common species, and examples of some rare and unique species of conservation concern will teach with pictures and live specimens, the grasses of the area. 

He will also introduce rushes, a much smaller group of grass-like plants.

Last year Matt taught from his book Sedges of Maine. The new book on grasses should be published in time for the program.

 The talk will take place May 17, 6:30 p.m., at the Belfast Free Library.

There will be a grass field trip on Sat., June 23, 10 a.m. to noon at 210 Oak Hill Road, Swanville.
