Grasses 101, an intro to grass identification taught by Robert Thornhill

(1 P.M. - 3 P.M.)

Robert Thornhill will teach the fifth in our series of botany classes.  The class will be held at Carolina Beach State Park in Carolina Beach on September 13, from 1-3 pm.  Robert is a botanist, teacher, and past winner of a NCNPS Shinn Grant for his work at Shaken Creek.

We’ll be focusing on techniques to identify local grasses.  Nearly everyone shies away from grass identification but there’s much we can learn about these critically important natives.  If you have come to our previous classes, you know how skilled a teacher Robert is.  The above photo, taken by Robert, is Toothache Grass (Ctenium aromaticum), a common grass of pineland savannas.
