Our native wildflowers, trees, and shrubs signal rebirth in spring. Learn to identify them and become familiar with their structure and taxonomy. Take part in field walks and classroom sessions, and practice using taxonomic keys. Students are required to make their own collections of plants and may borrow a herbarium press ($30 deposit required).
