Component 1 - Forbs

Location: Glen Bow Provincial Park
Date: June 10, 2024

This component of our course will involve a one hour classroom segment reviewing the parts of plants and an introduction to keying forbs. The rest of the day will be spent outside identifying forbs in field conditions. This component will include species found in the prairie, parkland, foothills and montane natural subregions of Alberta as well as weeds found within these regions. The goal of this component is to give each student a practical working knowledge and skill set that allows them to comfortably identify and key out forbs in every region across Alberta. The skills we are teaching focus on how to competently identify plants regardless of your location as well as seeing many of the species found within the mentioned regions. Over 30 species will be covered in this component.
