Ages 13 and up welcome

Would you like to step out of the “green blur” and learn to see the plants around you with a finer-tuned lens? In this class you have the opportunity to practice plant identification using keys and guides, learning the names and functions of plant structures along the way. You will be introduced to key species in our region’s landscape and will explore local plant communities and the special adaptations these plants use to survive in our mediterranean climate. Join local botany aficionado and California Naturalist, Heide Keeble, for a day of frolicking among the flowers, shrubs, ferns, and oaks. This class will begin and end in the classroom, with the bulk of the day spent in the field. It is ideal for beginners or anyone looking to brush up on the basics.
