Subject: sedge ID workshop, this time with attachment
Dear actual and potential sedge-o-phile,
Attached is an announcement of a 2-day workshop I am instructing, on July 7-8, on the field identification and ecology of sedges (genus Carex) in northwestern Connecticut, sponsored by Aton Forest, Inc. Please review the announcement and consider attending, if you are an intermediate to advanced botanizer who has a strong interest in gaining (or regaining) more taxonomic confidence in the field with largest genus of flowering plants in Connecticut (and North America). It is not a beginner's guide to grass-like plants. This workshop will focus, in largest part, on wetland habitats. I hope that this will be the first in a series of annual field identification workshops that will focus on different habitat suites, seasonal timings, and geographic subsets of Connecticut.
Also, please note, the New England Wildflower Society, though not a sponsor, has graciously agreed to count this workshop to count as one elective course or one core course, respectively, for those in their Field Botany and Advance Field Botany certificate programs.
Also, please feel free to forward this announcement to anyone else you think would be interested in this workshop.
