Additional Information:

Students can expect to see over 100 different plant species, including trees, shrubs, and herbaceous plants, while learning how to use two basic field guides for identifying wetland and upland plants. Guided by instructor and wetlands expert Ralph Tiner, students will have the opportunity to explore vegetation in freshwater wetland habitats typical of the region. By the end of the course, you will be able to use two common field guides to quickly and confidently identify wetland plant species that are important in determining if an area meets the hydrophytic vegetation criterion for wetland delineation.
