For adults, although teens 16 years and older may attend.
Interested in knowing the names of the wonderful wildflowers you encounter in forest and field? Then take this class where you’ll learn to “key-out” local plants using the popular Newcomb’s Wildflower Guide. Other field guides can be used, but the instruction will focus on the terminology and methodology of Newcombs. This will be a combination indoor/outdoor hands-on class. Geared for adults, but teens 16 or older may attend.
Please bring a hand lens, lunch, and water. Please consider buying Newcomb’s Wildflower Guide before the program and reading the introduction. A few copies of the guide and extra lenses will be available to borrow
