Have you explored the local flora on your own and wished for botanical guidance? Would knowledge of plant systematics improve your effectiveness in your job? This intensive plant identification class will enhance your skills. We’ll create a practical framework for learning by comparing traits of 50 plant families, learn how to key using the Jepson Manual and study names of local trees, shrubs and flowering plants. Morning lab and illustrated lectures will whet your appetite for botanizing afternoons in the field. Some plant keying experience is strongly recommended. Scholarships available for qualified students.
