CANCELED: Workshop Series with Jim Tolstrup: Part 2: Botany for Beginners

Sat. Mar 21, 2020

DUE TO CONCERNS OVER THE RECENT SPREAD OF COVID-19 (CORONAVIRUS), AND GIVEN OUR SMALL CLASSROOM SPACE, WE AT HPEC FEEL IT IS BEST TO CANCEL OUR BOTANY FOR BEGINNER’S WORKSHOP ON 3/21/20 TO HELP PRESERVE THE HEALTH AND SAFETY OF OUR COMMUNITY. IF YOU HAVE ALREADY REGISTERED, YOU MAY HAVE NOTICED THAT YOU RECEIVED A REFUND.

Required Materials: Notebook, Pen, Layers & Appropriate Footwear for Field Work- FREE EYE LOUPE FOR FIELD PLANT ID INCLUDED IN THE COST OF THE CLASS!

Cost: $55.00

*COFFEE, TEA, & SNACKS WILL BE PROVIDED; PLEASE BRING SACK LUNCH*

This course is designed to help beginners identify common native plants in the field. Participants will learn basic botanical terms that distinguish plant parts, and how to “key out” plants, identifying families based on broad commonalities and species based on their distinct characteristics.

Presentation formats will include looking at slides of various native plants, trees, shrubs, wildflowers, and grasses. Participants will review lists of plants, plant parts, flowers and their characteristics and look at plants up close using magnification.

If weather allows we will go outside to examine plants in the HPEC demonstration gardens.

Material: Participants in this program will receive an eye loupe and a packet listing the common flowering plant families found in Colorado.
