Northeast Wetland Plant Identification
June 13-14, 2012

Join us for a terrific two-day field workshop in northeastern Pennsylvania and learn your wetland plants. The class is entirely a field workshop. Each day we will set out on the trail to identify different wetland habitats and their unique vegetative communities. The class will be lead by a team of expert botanists who will show you the tips and tricks to quickly identify the plants that are in the area. We will also be recording the vegetation found on the US Army Corps of Engineers Regional Supplement Data forms and will review the "plant math" to determine if the habitat is a wetland plant community.

Thanks and I hope to see you in soon!
