We will cover not only how to identify grasses, but how to collect and press them for future reference or for the purpose of mailing to others for identification or verification. You can anticipate seeing about 50 different grass genera, along with various “grass-like” plants such as sedges and rushes. This class is for beginner through intermediate agrostologists.
