Description


Various forest types are found in Rhode Island, including oak, mixed coniferous/deciduous, pine barrens, hardwood, and floodplain. In many of these communities, you can find state flower Common Blue Violet with its spring blooms and state tree Red Maple with its brilliant red or yellow fall colors. Thousands of plants inhabit the Ocean State, and sorting through them can be a challenge. It helps, then, to have a portable reference on hand to cut through the clutter and focus on a smaller number of representative species to establish a solid base of knowledge on which to build. You can do this with the beautifully illustrated Rhode Island Trees & Wildflowers, which features 140 common and familiar trees, shrubs, and wildflowers as well as an ecoregion map showing over 20 botanical sanctuaries and learning sites. Laminated for durability, this lightweight, 12-panel folding pocket guide is a handy tool for educators, learners, naturalists, and botanists who wish to forge deeper and more meaningful connections with the land through its plant life. Made in the USA.
