Workshop description:
If you are familiar with the different anatomical features associated with the grass family, it can help make grass identification considerably more accessible for inexperienced or improving botanists. Following an introduction and some insight to grasses in Ireland, you’ll be tested by some indoor specimens collected for the workshop, before taking some time in the afternoon to practice in the field.

Health & Safety:
Please be mindful that this workshop includes an element of teaching outdoors. Warm waterproof clothing and good walking footwear are essential. As a rule of thumb, it is generally expected that any participants who sign up for a workshop that involves spending time in the outdoors will own and bring the appropriate outdoor clothing.
