The Go Botany website http://gobotany.newenglandwild.org/ is a new tool from the New England Wild Flower Society which helps users identify plants.
Don Hudson plans to bring plant material to the hands-on workshop and guide attendees through the process of using Go Botany.
Go Botany also works on mobile devices, such as smart phones and tablets. The library will provide some laptops, audience members can bring smart phones and tablets.
Go Botany has a simple key that allows amateur naturalists, hikers, campers and plant lovers to identify over 1200 common native and naturalized New England plants. Advanced users can identify even more plants.
The program is free, no registration required.
