Description: This class will teach you to recognize and appreciate organisms in a particular group, with the goal of developing the ability to identify other components of our local biodiversity. Classes meet 2 Sunday afternoons a month and together form a series that looks in-depth at segments of the natural world. Participants will gain a systematic knowledge of organismal groups which can be applied in the field. By building a foundation of a few common species across nature's many groups, you can recognize patterns and add new species by comparison, eventually gaining a thorough knowledge and understanding of local nature, natural communities, and habitats. Classes will be both indoors and outdoors using photos and specimens. There will be ample time to explore the sanctuary trails and put that practical knowledge to use. Joe Choinieres outdoor knowledge is both broad and deep. His gentle, hands-on teaching style makes it enjoyable and easy to learn. A continuing class is held on Sunday, August 26, 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM.
