COURSE INFO PROVIDER: Midwest Biodiversity Institute
COURSE TITLE: Wetland Botany

INSTRUCTORS Mick Micacchion
John Baird

COURSE DESCRIPTION During our four-day course, we will train individuals in advance botany skills through a combination of field, classroom (lecture and computer resources), laboratory, and herbarium training. Utilizing several regional books, attendees will learn how to identify the plants encountered. Field time will be spent visiting and collecting plants at diverse central Ohio wetlands. Plants collected in the wetlands will be keyed out and identified during in-the-field sit down sessions and/or at the Ohio State University Olentangy River Wetland Research Park Laboratory. At the laboratory, we will utilize microscopes to assist in the identification of wetland plants with an emphasis on grasses, sedges, and rushes. The final day will include a test of attendees� plant identification abilities. Participants will leave the course with exposure to the best methods for plant identification and how to use these skills to enhance their wetland careers.
