An Aton Forest Workshop led by botanist Bill Moorhead.
This plant identification workshop focuses on field identification and
ecology of important grasses, sedges, and rushes (collectively,
“graminoids”, or grass-like plants) that are commonly encountered in
Connecticut during the first part of summer. We will cover upland
grassland bird habitats, wet meadows and other graminoid-dominated
wetlands, dry grasslands, and some forested habitats. We will cover
the basic features that distinguish the major graminoid groups, the
terminology used in graminoid identification, distinguishing invasive
and other non-native species from native species, wetland indicator
values and other ecological affinities of various species.
