Learn to identify native and non-native wild plants in this class that combines guided exploration on your own and an online discussion.
Five days before the class begins, you will be given a list of plants to look for within a select area of a local park. Use any plant guides you have to see if you can find each species, and take pictures, drawings, and photos to help you remember what you saw.
We will then come together online to discuss what you found, what traits to look for to identify each plant, and the habits of each plant. The class will also cover botany terminology, plant families, and other background information to help you in future plant identification.
There are three class sections to choose from. Each class section has been paired with a different, specific park. Choose the park and / or date that works best for you!
