Conservation Training

Plant ID Hike

July 6, 2023

9:00 am – 11:00 am
Location: Woodruff, WI

Join Alex Graeff, botanist for the National Ecological Observatory Network’s Great Lakes Domain, for an outdoor-based plant identification workshop. The session will emphasize recognition of common vascular plant species found in typical north woods plant communities, and terminology and morphological features important for plant identification. While exploring the forests and bog at Kemp Station, we will apply identification techniques to the plants we encounter while discussing tidbits of north woods ecology. The hike will be about 1 mile, but with plenty of time stopped to discuss plants! It will include some moderately strenuous rolling terrain and some time at the bog mat.
