CNGA Grass Identification Workshop

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 eFlora dichotomous key.

  • Recognize the basic groups and common species.
  • Build a “collection” of identified samples.
  • Explore the unique coastal prairie grassland at Bodega Marine Reserve  

A class syllabus, a dissecting scope, and basic keys from the Jepson eFlora are provided. An afternoon field tour of coastal prairie at the Bodega Marine Reserve to see grasses in the field will round out this full day of learning.

  • Morning coffee and snacks are included
  • Lunch is not included, please bring your own lunch
