Enjoy a hands-on workshop presented by the instructors Drs. Richard Spellenberg, Naida Zucker and Tim Lowrey. The workshop will be an introduction to the structure and identification of the Sunflower Family (Asteraceae) using illustrations and live material. You will need a copy of the book The Sunflower Family: A Guide to the Family Asteraceae in the Contiguous United States by Spellenberg and Zucker, purchasable in our BRIT gift shop or at the free Native Sunflower Plant Talk and Book Signing event the evening before.
Participants are encouraged to bring a 10X hand lens or loupe. The workshop will conclude with a casual walk, searching for plants in the Asteraceae family, and looking at the features that must be understood for their identification. Lots of chance for one-on-one conversation with the instructors.
