Interested in knowing the names of the wonderful wildflowers you encounter in forest and field? Then take this class where you’ll learn to “key-out” local plants using the popular Newcomb’s Wildflower Guide. Other field guides can be used, but the instruction will focus on the terminology and methodology of Newcomb's. 

For adults, although teens 16 years and older may attend.

Leader:  Karyn Molines
