Grasses are fun and challenging to identify! Build your skills:

  • Understand California’s grassland ecology.

  • Familiarize yourself with grass-specific terminology.

  • Identify grasses by using The Jepson Manual, 2nd ed. dichotomous key.

  • Recognize the basic groups and common species.
  • Build a “collection” of identified samples.

A class syllabus, 10x hand lenses, and basic keys from the Jepson Manual website provided. An afternoon field tour on Pepperwood lands to see grasses in the field will round out this full day of learning.

  • Morning coffee and snacks are included.
  • Bring your own lunch.
