Description

Mosses are small and intriguing plants that occur in nearly all ecosystems, sometimes abundantly so. They are a species-rich group that is often overlooked, even by skilled botanists, because of a need to use magnification to see their identification features. This workshop, geared to educators, botanically oriented amateur naturalists, and natural resource professionals engaged in land stewardship, will teach the hand lens and microscope skills required to key out unknown specimens, as well as enable field- recognition of the most common genera.

Workshop fee includes room and meals.
