Class: Fall Wildflowers of the Georgia Piedmont (Certificate in Native Plants Elective)
The Certificate in Native Plants (CNP) offers committed individuals a comprehensive series of short courses in identification, cultivation, propagation, ecology and conservation of native Georgia plants.
In this class, students will learn to recognize the most common fall-blooming wildflowers in the Georgia Piedmont and be introduced to the basic botanical terminology used in identifying and describing fall-flowering plants, with an emphasis on plants in the Aster (composite) family. The class will then apply that knowledge to plants in the field, learning to recognize families, genera, and species based on characteristics readily observable in the field.
