A one-day course in low-water and floodplain grasses, sedges, and woodies along the lower Winooski River. Vermont has about forty species of late-blooming sedges (mostly), rushes (a few) and grasses (even fewer) that are best sought on river and lake shores in late summer and fall. They are a distinctive and fascinating flora; the lower Winooski is one of the best places to find them and learn them. Taught by Brett Engstrom and Jerry Jenkins, who have many happy days of river time between them.

A Northern Forest Atlas day course hosted by NBNC’s Biodiversity University.
