IDENTIFYING SEDGES

Presented by: Dr. Paul Rothrock
Dr. Paul Rothrock has studied sedges and other plants at Fogwell Forest and Wildwood Nature Preserves. He found the rare plant Carex seorsa and a distinct species, Carex echinaodes. Dr. Rothrock will lead a hike at Wildwood and teach us how to identify the
different sedges that are sometimes easily overlooked but provide great and diverse
value to the natural landscape.
