Introduction to Grasses Identification

Many people are apprehensive about identifying grasses. With a little practice, however, you can learn to recognize common species using plain English vocabulary and naked-eye characteristics. Lauren Brown, co-author with Ted Elliman of Grasses, Sedges, Rushes: An Identification Guide, will introduce these beautiful and abundant plants.

Though not necessary, a hand lens could be useful. A copy of Grasses, Sedges, Rushes: An Identification Guide by Lauren Brown and Ted Elliman is essential to your following the class. You can purchase a copy from our Garden Shop here. A portion of this class will be held outside, please wear appropriate clothing.

Please note: We do not make video or audio recordings of classes or programs available after the fact, because we believe education is interactive, with instructors and students building a community and culture of learning. Some programs may be recorded strictly for instructor-training purposes. Please visit this page to review this and other FAQs about our policies.
