Delaware Highlands Conservancy: Women And Their Woods Plant Identification Workshop Oct. 14 At Prompton State Park, Wayne County

Join the
Delaware Highlands Conservancy and Heather Houskeeper, the Botanical Hiker, for a Women and Their Woods Plant Identification Workshop on Saturday, October 14 from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. at Prompton State Park in Wayne County, PA.

Attendees will learn how to confidently identify wild plants using a plant identification key and loupe magnifier and will learn basic botanical terms and plant morphology.

This knowledge is all you need to start recognizing plants’ unique identifying characteristics and to discern one plant from another. 

These skills will enrich your every walk, are helpful in choosing which plants to foster and which to weed out, and are essential when working with edible and medicinal plants. The program will focus on herbaceous (non-woody) flowering plants.

Event fee is $20 for Conservancy members or Women and Their Woods graduates, or $30 for non-members. Space is limited and prior registration is required. 

To learn more and register, visit the Conservancy’s Events webpage, or call 570-226-3164 ext. 2.
