This three-part series begins February 9th, 2013; and the last class takes place on April 13th, 2013. This series, open to people of all levels, will study the characteristics botanists use to classify, identify, and recognize major groups and families of plants. Examining fresh plant material, preserved specimens, photographs, and published references will teach pupils to learn plant parts and functions. The information in these three classes builds on itself, so it is suggested that one takes the classes in sequence for maximum benefit and learning. A discount is available when you pre-pay for all three classes at once. Instructor Bob Allen, or “Bug Bob” as some know him, is a renowned Orange County biologist who specializes in botany and entomology. His exceptional knowledge and natural talent for teaching has educated and inspired botanists, gardeners, and nature lovers of all skill levels throughout the region, and he continues to do so through the Fullerton Arboretum’s Plant Identification Series.
