A field guide is a vital tool for any naturalist looking to identify a specimen.

Nature lovers may be familiar with the Audubons and Petersons on their shelves, but the genre has a much longer history. From medieval herbals, to Catesby’s floras, to the familiar guides we use today, this program will track the evolution of field guides using the library collections at Holden Forests & Gardens. Don’t miss this opportunity to examine some of our rarest and most beautiful collections! As a special treat, we’ll highlight some works by female naturalists to celebrate Women’s History Month. Light refreshments provided.
