Wildflower Identification: Field Guide Basics

Categorized as: Other, Nature & Outdoors
Event tags:


Field guides are a valuable resource for identifying wildflowers, and they come in a wide variety of styles. Practice using several different guides to identify desirable native flowers and invasive aliens at a nearby natural area. Come away with stronger plant ID skills, a greater understanding of our local flora, and how plant communities are influenced by site conditions such as slope, soil type, and sun/ shade patterns. Dress for the weather, bring a water bottle and snack, and wear sturdy shoes for hiking on moderate slopes. Rain date for this class is Friday, May 26.
