Annual Plant Identification Courses

Tannas Conservation Services (TCS) and Eastern Slopes Rangeland Seeds (ESRS) are pleased to host their annual plant identification course June 5-8, 2017. The course will be held in three components, forbs, grasses and willows/sedges. Each component will involve a classroom component but will focus on field keying and identification using The Common Plants of The Western Rangelands as a text.

These courses have been developed as hands on courses that instill practical skills for professionals and amateur botanists alike. Our instructors include expert plant taxonomists with over 30 years' experience as well as some young professionals that have won international awards in plant identification competitions.

In these courses we train each student how to identify vascular plants within field conditions. Students will be able to select the instructor they wish to learn from and switch instructors in order to learn from each instructor's experience.
