Plant ID and Ecological Notes: Kansas City

Description: NatureCITE is pleased to offer a one of a kind plant identification and ecology workshop located in the Kansas City Area. This three day workshop will begin with a review of common plant terminology and plant families the first morning. The rest of the workshop will be spent in the field experiencing plant species where they occur. Since each species can tell us something about ecology, ecological dynamics will be discussed at length. In order to provide as holistic of a picture as possible, we will focus on common species, but will include uncommon and rare species where appropriate. This workshop is as much about nature appreciation as it is education, so be prepared to enjoy the experience with an open and curious mind. With the guidance of NatureCITE botanists you will learn about new species and the mind-blowing ecological concepts they illustrate.   


We plan to visit several sites no more than 45 minutes from the Kansas City area. This workshop is appropriate for beginner through expert levels. We hope you can join us this Spring!!
