Our second certification workshop will be Plants of Louisiana, with Dr. Charles Allen, who has literally written the books on Louisiana plants!

We will meet at the Chevron gas station and Excel Mart on Hwy 165 in Georgetown at 9 a.m. April 28, have class under their canopy, then caravan into the Kisatchie to look at plants. We’ll come back to the station for lunch and a pit stop, go back into the Forest for more plants, then wrap up back at the station no later than 3 p.m.

Here is a link to the agenda for the day (also uploaded to Certification page):

Workshop 2 Flyer

Folks, please read the agenda/flyer carefully. It contains important instructions. Everything you need to know to be prepared for the day is there.

The link to pay for this workshop is on the certification page. If you want to pay on site, please be sure to make arrangements with me in advance via email.

It would be extremely helpful if you would print the registration form that is linked to the Certification page, fill it out, and bring it with you. (It cannot be completed online.) I will have some blank forms with me, but the more that can be done in advance, the more time we’ll get to spend in the field looking at plants!

Now for good measure, here’s a plant we saw at Rendezvous:

Joe Pye Weed (Eutrochium fistulosum)

This plant is in a distinct minority of plants with this type of leaf attachment to the stem. You will learn about this, as well as terminology for describing everything you can see in the photo–plus the name of the plant. So I’m not going to spill the beans now!

See you the 28th.
