Plant Identification Workshop and Outing • Douglas County

Saturday, Aug 16th, 2008
Lawrence, KS • Map

Learn how to identify Asters (Sunflowers) and Legumes (Beans) with Caleb Morse, Collection Manager for the McGregor Herbarium. Beginners, as well as those more advanced wishing to brush up on their skills, are invited. The emphasis will be to help participants past the confusion, “darn yellow composites…”, and to become more familiar with two ubiquitous plant families. Participants will have available mounted specimens, as well as fresh specimens for review. You are also welcome to bring any legume or aster plants you may have been wondering about. August 16 session will be held at the R.L. McGregor Herbarium in Lawrence, KS from 10am to 12:30pm. August 23 session will be held at the Ivan Boyd Prairie in Baldwin City, KS from 10am to 12:30pm. Kansas Native Plant Society sponsors this workshop. Registration is free, but limited to 16 people. Contact Caleb to sign-up: (785) 864-4493.
