COURSE TITLE: Plant ID: Wetlands & Their Borders

INSTRUCTORS Ralph Tiner

COURSE DESCRIPTION This course introduces students to plants common in and around northeast wetlands. Nontidal wetland species and upland border species are emphasized. The instructor will guide students through easy-to-use keys in his “Field Guide to Nontidal Wetland Identification.” Students will get hands-on experience working in small groups to identify these plants. The instructor, based on his vast knowledge, will give helpful hints for plant identification. A variety of wetlands will be visited to expose students to species characterizing typical wetland types in the region. This course is a good refresher for those individuals who need to brush up or for those who want to sharpen their plant identification skills.
