Wetland Plant Identification
Explore a variety of wetland community types, their ecology, and their common indicator species. Following a brief lecture, we’ll visit wetland habitats, including a red maple swamp, a floodplain marsh, and a pond. While in the field, we will take advantage of the season by observing ferns, sedges, and various aquatic species, as well as shrubs and trees. Bring a hand lens, lunch, water, and come prepared for wet feet in the field.
