Intro to Plant ID, Northern California
July 10, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm$375 – $395
Teacher: Josie Crawford. We will review plant structure terminology, then learn the terminology and characteristics of some of the more common California plant families. This knowledge will reduce the amount of time required to key most plants to genus and species. Scientific names will be used throughout the workshop. Emphasis will be given to northern California species; however, information learned in this class will be readily applicable throughout California and the world. The class will include classroom presentations and exercises, with at least a third of the time spent outdoors in the field. Common native species will be covered, including species in mixed conifer and Sierran meadow habitats. Advance materials on plant structure terminology will be provided. To earn a certificate of completion, participants will need to pass a quiz at the end of the workshop, where they will be expected to use the plant terminology covered, recognize plants learned, and identify the family in which they belong.
