Learn Plant ID and you'll be able to walk through your neighborhood or forest preserve with the skills to identify most trees and plants you encounter. No more wondering, "What is that plant or tree?" Register for this class if you plan on taking any "Let's Walk + Learn" classes or our Edible Wild Plants Certificate course.
In our classroom, you will learn how to use a plant key and guide book, basic botanical terminology, and the key identifiers to look for. Specimens will be available to practice your new skills under the guidance of an experienced instructor. A variety of field guide books will be available for you to peruse so you can find one you like best (although rarely does one book suffice).
