Learn plant id skills and basic botanical terminology to key out a plant or tree using field guides and have the language to describe what you’re observing. Plant specimens will be available to practice your new skills under the guidance of an experienced instructor.
Please bring a lupe (8x) magnifying glass, or something similar and books to identify trees and wildflowers. Pat recommends The Master Tree Finder and Flower Finder by May Theilgaard Watts and will use these in class.
This class is a prerequisite for people planning to take the Edible Wild Plants and Bioregional Herbalism Certificate courses, unless excused by instructor.
Instructor: Pat Armstrong
