This class is now sold out.  Please email mschmidlkofer@brit.org to be added to the waitlist.

Learn all about plant forms and identification in this fast-paced, 5-session evening course. Students will tackle the scientific terminology and techniques used by the pros and forever change the way they look at plants! Topics covered include the characteristics of important plant families, how to use an identification key, plant morphology, and the value of botany. Classes will focus on seasonal local flora but provide students with skills that can be used no matter where they travel, connecting them to the places they visit and habitats they encounter. Sessions will be held in the evening, 6:00pm – 8:00pm, and will include both lecture and hands-on investigation, indoors and outdoors. **NOTE: The first session of this Fall series is an Introduction to Vegetative and Reproductive Morphology and is similar to the first session in the Spring series.
