ONSITE | Saturday, May 11, 1 – 4 p.m.

Our botany intensive will focus on the families of plants found commonly in Appalachia. We will cover the differences in how plants look regarding leaves, flowers, fruits and other parts and how this may help in proper identification. The way plants are classified based on these features and more recently DNA will be discussed relative to how they are referred to scientifically. We will also look at the best book and web resources for the exploration of botany in the region. A comprehensive slide lecture will cover the major characteristics of botany in general and apply learning when examining various forms of collected plant material.
