White Memorial Conservation Center Program; The Wild Floers of Iceland's Ring Road--Litchfield


Route 202, Litchfield, CT 06759. Phone: 860-567-0857.

November 9  The Wild Flowers of Iceland's Ring Road with Peter & Barbara Rzasa & David McCullough Iceland is often called "The Land of Fire and Ice" because of the many volcanoes and glaciers that populate the country. The country is also a noted birder's paradise famous for its population of puffins, arctic terns, white-tailed eagles and other sea birds. It is not readily known that Iceland is the home to hundreds of flowering plants including several varieties of orchids. Botanists believe that half of Iceland's plant specimens are survivors of the last Ice Age, while twenty percent have been introduced since the arrival of the first settlers in the 9th century. About one-third of the plant specimens are of the artic-alpine type. The island's plant life consists of a profusion of ground level wild herbs, gentian, mustards, and several berry species while carpets of mosses, lupine and moss campion blanket lava flows. Water avens and marsh marigolds are found in wet and marshy areas; the Arctic poppy on sandy soil. Join Nature photographer and world traveler David McCullough for a slide show presentation of se Icelandic flowers that he photographed in Iceland this past summer while traveling Iceland's 832-mile long Ring Road. Naturalists Barbara and Peter Rzasa will provide information and interesting stories about the plants, and a brief overview of Iceland and its natural history. 1:00 P.M., A.B. Ceder Room, Members: $10.00 Non members: $15.00 Pre registration and pre payment are required.
