NEW! Grasses of RMNP

Jul 25 - Jul 26, 2020

$160

Grass identification is difficult even for the professional botanist! Why even bother?! The grass family is the third largest family in the world, species occupy every continent, and grasses are one of the most important aspects in all of human civilization! The class will focus on the characteristics for each grass tribe (The grass family is so big that it is divided into tribes.) common in Rocky Mountain National Park. There will be a classroom component, but majority of the class will be enjoyed outside in the field.

CSM credit available
