Join us for a lively virtual exploration of Colorado’s plant families. Extensive photos along with sketches of distinguishing characteristics will enhance identifying and keying flora. While there are approximately 155 plant families in Colorado, this presentation will emphasize those with the most species, for example, Asteraceae (sunflowers), Brassicaceae (mustards), and Rosaceae (rose), along with common shrubs and some trees. This webinar is designed for beginners and intermediate amateur botanists or anyone new to our fabulous flora.
