For several years I have led a very popular and relatively inexpensive grass identification and ecology workshop at The Morton Arboretum. I will be leading that workshop again this summer. In addition, for anyone who has taken that workshop in the past or who takes the workshop this year, there will also be an advanced grass identification workshop following the first workshop. Information on the workshops follows. If you know of someone who may be interested, please spread the word.
Tired of seeing "unknown grass" and "Dichanthelium sp." on your vegetation sampling datasheets? Need to know what species that Elymus is to figure out if you're in a wetland or an upland? Interested in learning vegetative characteristics for some of our more common grasses? Just want to know more about grass identification and ecology in general? If the answer to any of these questions is "yes," then the workshops discussed below being held on September 5-6 and 7-8, 2017 at The Morton Arboretum in Lisle, Illinois may be for you. If you have any questions about the workshops, email Scott Namestnik at firstname.lastname@example.org.
