Want to work on your flora identification skills? Practice with a naturalist! Field day emphasis is on proper use and application of an ID key, which opens the door to identifying thousands of species. The naturalist will work with each attendee based on their prior experience. If you’ve never worked with flower ID before, this is a great way to learn. If you have prior experience, this is a fun way to practice your skills (and maybe add some new blooms to your life list!). 2 hours

Things to Bring:
• Newcomb’s Wildflower Guide - extra copies will be available for use
• insect repellant
• hat and sunglasses for sun protection
• water bottle
• camera (if you’re the picture-taking type!)
