Winter Wetland Botany

Thursday November 29, 2018

Times: 10 a.m.-3 p.m.

Winter Wetland Botany

Winter is so much more enjoyable when we spend time outside with the diversity of nature around us and Volo Bog is gorgeous in this time of year. Shades of grays and browns are accented by surprises of green (think moss and ferns) accented occasionally in white with a dusting or blanket of snow. This day-long workshop with Naturalist Stacy Iwanicki starts indoors with a self-paced exploration of herbarium specimens. After lunch we head outside to find the plants along the boardwalk and share what we have learned. Ideal for the seriously curious student of botany or someone just getting into plants, this program is geared to adults and interested youth ages 11 and older. Registration requested by emailing dnr.volobog@illinois.gov or by phone at 815-344-1294. Tell us your name, email, phone number, and ages of any minors. Group size is limited; program may be cancelled if minimum registration is not met 48 hours prior.
