A DAY OF PLANTS May 14th
LOWER SEYMOUR CONSERVATION RESERVE
In this class, we will learn about botany and why it is useful. We will briefly touch on scientific classifications and then delve in to the world of plant plant ID. What can you look for when identifying a plant? How do you use a plant field guide? What are some key features to different plant families? This will be a mix of sitting and teaching, as well as a plant walk to discover different plants. We will meet such families as the Rose, Mint, Aster, Buttercup, Honeysuckle, and more!
Join herbalist and wildcrafter Jenna Rudolph on this plant walk. The walk will be casual, and packed with lots of useful information. We will learn names of plants, identification techniques, plant families, and some edible, medicinal and ethnobotanical uses of plants. We will also taste some medicine of the plants we meet.
Please dress appropriately for the weather and bring a notebook and pen if you wish to take notes.
