Jepson Classes for 2011 Announced

One of the missions of the Jepson Herbarium is to offer educational opportunities for interested amateur and professional botanists through its workshop program.  I have taken a number of classes through Jepson and have found them to usually be of high quality and taught by knowledgeable instructors.  The programs are described as :

Basic Botany classes for people  with little or no botanical background.

Workshop classes: Designed for botanists, ecologists, conservationists, educators, interested amateurs, biological consultants, and federal and state agency employees. The content of these workshops is technical and the level of instruction will assume that participants have a general understanding of the subject material.

For detailed descriptions of the classes and registration go to:
Classes often fill so early registration is advised.  Click read more below to see a list of this year’s classes.
