This workshop is intended for beginners and as a review for other and conservation professionals. It will teach skills for identifying woody plants in Massachusetts freshwater wetlands--using photos, field guides/keys, an herbarium and live winter specimens.

This workshop will focus on the most frequently encountered trees, shrubs, and woody vines of swamps, bogs, marshes, and other freshwater wetlands in Massachusetts. This two-block session will include both hands-on identification and PowerPoint presentations that will cover characteristics used in field identification and photos and descriptions of each plant. The classroom set-up will include both herbarium and live winter specimens. These and additional photos and field guides will help attendees recognize common freshwater woody wetland plants in the field using the most prominent features of each plant. This workshop is intended for beginners and may also serve as a refresher on basic wetland plant identification for others.
