An Introduction to Wildflower Identification Using Newcomb’s Field Guide

June 17 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm


Want to improve your plant identification skills?  This workshop will begin in the classroom with a one hour review of plant identification terms and getting familiar with the unique key devised by Newcomb.  We will then proceed outside to use this key to identify live specimens. (In the event of inclement weather, we will gather flowers to work on inside.)

Bring a copy of Newcomb’s Wildflower Guide.  If you have some wildflowers you’re particularly interested in identifying, bring them along as well!

Workshop Instructor: Carl Sawyer, veteran RIWPS member and former research associate from the URI Department of Plant Sciences
Participants: minimum 7, maximum 15
Fee $15.00; $10.00 RIWPS members
