Botany of the Pacific Northwest Online

Whether your goal is to sustainably harvest edible plants, build pollinator friendly gardens, or simply explore your local ecology, learning basic plant identification is just the place to start!

There are over 3,000 native plant species in Washington State yet many people can’t tell a fir from a hemlock or a calyx from a corolla. This societal condition of plant blindness has led to the wasteful destruction of much of our native flora but by putting names to these plants we can begin to understand the important role each one plays in keeping our planet healthy and well fed.

This presentation will cover different strategies for beginner plant ID, common plant families of the PNW, and the growing need for citizen scientists like you to monitor changing plant populations.
