This workshop picks up where IPP 101 leaves off, with more emphasis on learning the ecology and the distinctive physical characteristics of the native plants that inhabit Maine’s lakes and ponds. Attendees will hone their identification skills with live specimens, and have the option of participating in an Aquatic Plant ID Proficiency Certification exam. Bring plants from your favorite lake, pond, or stream to identify and share with others. This is a botany fest of epic proportions! Previous exposure to plant identification (e.g., attending an IPP 101 workshop) is helpful, but not required.
