Native Plant ID (formerly Keying with Natives) is a Chapter group that works together to learn plant identification using botanical keys and other resources.

Tom Lee’s presentation will help us learn more about the value of botanical nomenclature. Botanical names can reduce confusion that comes with common plant names. More importantly, botanical names often provide useful information to help understand plant behavior and to identify the plants. This presentation will have some specific examples of how to use botanical names to your advantage in learning about native plants.

You may still bring samples for identification but we won’t have lot of time for that at this session.
