This plant identification workshop focuses on field identification, ecology, and indicator value of genus Carex, i.e. the “sedges”, the most diverse genus of vascular plants in Connecticut. Considered by many a “cryptic” group, the sedges are actually a well-behaved taxonomic group with relatively little hybridization. The workshop will emphasize development of field identification skills. An evening lab session will be help in the evening of July 16th. We will begin at AF Hq and then carpool to various locations to see plants in their natural habitats. This workshop is co-sponsored with the Connecticut Botanical Society.
Location: Aton Forest headquarters. 270 North Colebrook Road, Norfolk CT
Tuition: $170 for both days.
