As part of the Plant Identification Workshop Series, this workshop is designed to provide the advanced skills and experience necessary to properly identify and sample wetland plants. The workshop will focus on identifying wetland, and some aquatic, species of the Upper Midwest in both lab and field settings. To accomplish this, Stephanie Lyon, Ph.D. and Paul Skawinski, will review plant anatomy in relation to dichotomous keys as well as proper field sampling techniques.

At the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Categorize common wetland communities of the Upper Midwest
  • Use simple dichotomous keys to identify plant genera and/or species
  • Demonstrate field plant sampling techniques

Workshop runs from 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. For more information and to register please visit: https://www.uwsp.edu/conted/ConfWrkShp/Pages/Wetland-Plant-ID.aspx
