This class is a mandatory prerequisite for future classes in the series that aims to teach identification through learning plant family characteristics. Some of the topics covered will be flower parts, leaf shapes and other anatomy, classification systems and botanical terminology to familiarize you with the jargon needed for successful navigation of botanical keys, floras and field guides.

Future offerings will be Wildflowers 102: Rose, Buttercup, Mustard and Pink Families and Wildflowers 103: Carrot, Legumes and Milkweed Families in March and April 2018. Other families will be offered throughout the year.
