This workshop introduces participants to the basics of plant identification. No previous experience with plant identification is required. Lectures on taxonomy, plant structure and use of plant keys for identification are provided with appropriate field work. It is preferable but not required to take this workshop prior to the Basic Wetland Delineation Training Workshop.

Participants will be introduced to the process of identifying wetland and aquatic plants using technical keys. No prior use of keys or previous identification experience is assumed, making this truly a basic course. Planned workshop activities include an introduction to plant keys and plant key structure during the morning of day one. Participants will learn basic plant structure and morphology during the afternoon of day one. Woody—trees and shrubs—plant identification will be emphasized during the morning of day two. Herbaceous plant identification—with emphasis on rushes, sedges and grasses—will be the focus during the afternoon of day two and the morning of day three. A survey will conclude the planned activities. A mixture of lab and field work is planned. A certificate of participation and University of Wisconsin-Extension Continuing Education Units will be awarded to each participant.
