Every Name Tells a Story: An Introduction to Plant Identification

When: Thu., April 28, 6:30-9 p.m. 2016

In this presentation, botanist Peter Warner, will provide a brief foray into plant identification, highlighting Laguna-related wetland, riparian, and grassland plants. Together, we’ll investigate the science-based mechanics of classifying plants, including the essential foundation of communication: naming names by pigeon-holing a few worthy representatives. We’ll take advantage of vocabulary and photography to assist us in our quest for insights and perspective. With an emphasis on the most prolific group of plants, the angiosperms, we’ll learn how to distinguish among locally common plant families! Participants are encouraged to bring plant specimens for identification after the presentation.
