Adult Ecology: Plant ID Series- Identifying Grasses, Sedges, and Rushes
Saturday, September 8, 2012 from 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM (EDT)
Grasses and sedges are one of the most difficult groups of plants to identify. Identifying Grasses, Sedges, and Rushes is part lab and part field trip. Through a brief presentation and field trip, participants will learn to identify some common grass, sedge, and rush genera. Basic botanical terms will be used to identify each genera discussed. The focus will be on distinguishing characteristics of a few common genera, rather than distinguishing between each species. Once participants are familiar with the general differences between the genera, they will be able to drill down to species with a good field guide.
