This course is intended for a broad audience as well as for students who are enrolled in either of the NCBG certificate programs. Field trips and exercises provide experience in the use of identification keys and recognition of plants in a natural setting. Upon completion of this course, students will have an understanding of basic plant morphology, naming conventions for plants and the history of scientific naming, how to identify the prominent plants of the season using a dichotomous key and field characteristics, all through a season-specific lens.
NOTE: Field sessions may involve moderate off-trail hiking; be prepared for weather conditions. The first session on March 27 will take place at NCBG, the second session on April 17 will tour a portion of Eno River State Park in Durham, and the final session on May 8 will visit the Seven Mile Creek Natural Area in Hillsborough. Transportation is not provided; specific meeting spots will be sent to event registrants.
