Vegetative Grass Identification

October 12 @ 10:00 am - October 13 @ 5:00 pm

Even without flowers, grasses are beautiful and easier to identify than you might think. On this beginner-intermediate course, you will learn how to identify grasses vegetatively (i.e. when not in flower) – a useful skill.

This skill can enable continued habitat surveying throughout the year or simply allow you to get your botanical fix during the winter months. This course will use classroom and field elements to equip you with the knowledge and skills to be able to independently identify grasses vegetatively.

This course will cover:

  • Knowledge and skills necessary to identify a range of vegetative grasses independently.
  • All the anatomy and terminology that you need, in order to use a variety of keys to aid identification.
  • A number of local field excursions to cement learning and explore new species.
  • Although not the focus of the course, if you see sedges and rushes out in the field, these will be discussed.

Please refer to our website for further information and to book.
