Wetland Plant Identification
In this workshop we focus on a variety of wetland community types, their ecology, and common indicator species. Following a short introductory lecture, we visit wetland habitats, including a red-maple swamp, a flood-plain marsh, and a pond. While in the field, take advantage of the season by exploring ferns, sedges, and various aquatic species, as well as shrubs and trees. Bring a hand lens, lunch, and come prepared for wet feet in the field.
