Warm-Season Grasses of the Georgia Piedmont Certificate in Native Plants

October 7, 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

$50

Certificate in Native Plants Elective: Warm Season Grasses of the Georgia Piedmont

Fee: $50

Grasses are the most economically and ecologically important plant family but most of us know very little about them and fewer still know how to identify grasses. In this class, we will learn to recognize common fall-flowering grass species of the Georgia Piedmont. During the first half of the class, we will dissect grass plants to learn the basic structures that are useful for identification in the field. The last two hours of the class will be spent in the field examining a variety of native and exotic grasses. Be sure to bring a hand lens if you have one.
