"Knowing Your Grasses" is critical to many fields of science and practice, including wetland identification and delineation, ecosystem restoration, erosion control, and interpretation of natural history. Beautiful and diverse, grasses are globally important in many ways. WNPS proudly partners with  the UW Herbarium at the Burke Museum to offer this grass identification workshop.
