7 pm Friday, 07/27/2018 through the afternoon of Sunday, 07/29/2018

Workshop co-sponsored by NYFA and the Bailey Hortorium.

Grasses are a large and significant part of the flora of New York, making up around 9% of the flora. They include highly invasive species as well as very rare natives. They grow in deep marshes, on dry rocky summits, and in cracks in the sidewalk....

This workshop will focus on the identification and ecology of grasses that occur in New York. We will spend a lot of time in the field and have lab time as well, where access to dissecting microscopes will make examination of the small floral structures easier. This workshop is for all levels. There will be a review of basic grass parts and time for self or group study of specimens that will be supplied and/or that students bring.

The workshop fee is $140 for NYFA members and students; $170 for non-members. Participants are encouraged to become NYFA members and save $10. See the link above for registration info.

Participation is limited so please sign up early. TOO LATE
