Plant Identification Workshop
The Central Puget sound Chapter offers regular plant identification workshops to help members improve plant ID skills. While the Workshop is oriented primarily toward beginners, anyone who wants to work on improving keying skills or their familiarity with the northwest flora is welcome. Our main objectives are practice with technical identification keys, familiarity with plant families, and recognition of common northwest species. No prior experience is necessary; the only requirements are interest in the topic, patience with beginners if you are an old hand, and patience with old hands if you are a beginner. If you have them, bring a hand lens and a copy of Hitchcock or another favorite plant book. You are encouraged to bring unknown plants for identification. We will have plenty of material and tools if you come empty handed. CPS botanists will be the instructors.
