Certificate in Native Plants Elective
Linda Chafin, botanist
The cool, moist forests of the Piedmont’s ravines and slopes support a wealth of spring wildflowers. Students will learn the botanical terminology to identify and describe plants and will learn a variety of tools to identify spring-blooming plants. We will then visit the Dunson Native Flora Garden and learn about a number of spring ephemerals and other early-blooming plants.
