SPECIAL PINELANDS PLANTS COURSE - FUNDAMENTALS
   Time: 7 pm - 9 pm  
     Sponsored by: New Jersey Conservation Foundation
     Start: 06/04/15 - End: 08/06/15
Location: Pinelands Preservation Alliance - Pinelands Visitor Center, 17 Pemberton Road , Southampton, NJ

This year, we'll focus on the natural relationships and modern classification of plants, using the Pine Barrens of New Jersey as our outdoor classroom. By investigating, especially, plant families, and the characteristics that systematists use in trying to delineate them, we'll reinforce our understanding of plant morphology, which will greatly enhance our field botany skills.

This course will be geared for beginners, though seasoned field botanists may also enjoy the tour of plant families and the careful study of the intriguing variety of flower morphology.

We'll study live and pressed specimens during the ten evening workshops, and make nine weekend field trips. Of course, we'll also pay close attention to plants and plant communities that are of conservation priority.

The class will meet every Thursday evening from 7-9pm, June 4th to August 6th with field trips taking place on weekends. Registration is $150 per person. High school and college students with a valid ID may register for a 50% discount at $75 per person.
